Familiar Strangers : New & Selected Poems 1960-2004 Paperback / softback


Familiar Strangers is Brendan Kennelly's own selection from over 20 poetry books written over five decades.

This landmark volume replaces his earlier selections A Time for Voices, Breathing Spaces and Begin.

But Kennelly has revisited his life work, re-scoring familiar and estranged pieces into new gatherings which reflect his preoccupations more powerfully, bringing together poems from different times - and adding many new, previously lost or uncollected poems - so that they speak in chorus like the generations of people they celebrate.
