Poetry Ireland Review Issue 126 :

Edited by Eavan Boland

Poetry Ireland Review Issue 126 includes Nell Regan’s essay on the Irish-language poetry of the legendary impresario Micheál Mac Líammóir (1899-1978), who co-founded Dublin’s Gate Theatre and numbered Orson Welles among his friends and collaborators. Lottie Limb re-evaluates Blanaid Salkeld, a woman poet whose work remains unjustly neglected, in an essay that makes a compelling case for Salkeld to be regarded as a leading Irish modernist poet of the last century. There are new poems from over sixty poets in this issue, including work from Annemarie Ní Churreáin, Greg Delanty, Medbh McGuckian, Colette Bryce, Simon Ó Faoláin, Anne Tannam, and featured poet Roisin Kelly. The books reviewed in this issue include titles from Derek Mahon, Martina Evans, John F Deane, Colm Keegan, Alice Kinsella, and Elaine Feeney, while Bernard O’Donoghue reviews 100 Poems, a special selection of Seamus Heaney’s work, chosen by his family.
