Description

A Guardian / Herald Scotland Book of the Year

Winner of the 2017 PEN Pinter prize
Shortlisted for the 2017 Forward Prize


A remote townland in County Mayo, Carrigskeewaun has been for nearly fifty years Michael Longley s home-from-home, his soul-landscape. Its lakes and mountains, wild animals and flowers, its moody seas and skies have for decades lit up his poetry. Now they overflow into Angel Hill, his exuberant new collection. In addition, Longley has been exploring Lochalsh in the Western Highlands where his daughter the painter Sarah Longley now lives with her family. She has opened up for him her own soul-landscape with its peculiar shapes and intense colours. In Angel Hill the imaginations of poet and painter intermingle and two exacting wildernesses productively overlap. Love poems and elegies and heart-rending reflections on the Great War and the Northern Irish Troubles add further weight to Michael Longley s outstanding eleventh collection. Angel Hill will undoubtedly delight this great poet s many admirers.
