By John Burnside

Over seventeen years and 9 collections, John Burnside has outfitted - within the phrases of Bernard O'Donoghue - 'a poetic corpus of the 1st significance', a poetry of luminous, limpid grace. His territory is the no-man's-land of threshold and margin, the charmed half-light of the liminal, a household international threaded via with secret, fantasy and longing.

In this Selected Poems we will see subject matters emerge and improve in the growing to be self belief of Burnside's sinuous lyric poise: where of the person on the earth, the assumption of living, of home, inside of that neighborhood, and the trap of absence and get away set opposed to the probabilities of renewal and continuity.

This is consummate, immaculate paintings born out of a lean and agile craftsmanship, profound philosophical idea and a haunted, haunting mind's eye; the result's a poetry that makes intimate, resonant, beautiful music.
