New and Selected Poems, Paperback Book


Dennis O'Driscoll is among the finest and most popular poets of his generation. "New and Selected Poems" shows him to be a poet of humanity and wit whose observant, rhythmically supple poetry is attuned to the tragedies and comedies of contemporary life.

One of the book's highlights is The Bottom Line, a multi-voiced and multifaceted portrait of business managers and bureaucrats.

Closing with a generous selection of previously unpublished work, "New and Selected Poems" - which follows Dennis O'Driscoll's acclaimed "Exemplary Damages", chosen as a Book of the Year by Seamus Heaney in 2002 - makes for a compelling collection, wide in its appeal and yet imbued with a distinctive and often startling world-view.
