131 Moran, Patrick GREEN
Salmon Poetry 2009 1903392950 / 9781903392959 Softcover New 
0.2 x 7.8 x 4.9 Inches; 60 pages; Green, Patrick Moran's second collection of poetry, shows a poet trying to reconcile his rural heritage with an Ireland in the process of transition. In doing so, these carefully wraught poems explore the implications of leaving: the parting from loved ones; what is left to us; and the scraps we are left with. The title poem, Green, with its elegiac blend of wonder and loss, strikes a characteristic note. As he comes to terms with changing landscapes and thwarted dreams, the poet concludes: It's all in the harvesting"". Yet, even in the face of transcience, Moran is ultimately positive. In Autumn, for example, he can still hear birds chirping in his ""inner hedges"". And, as another spring dawns, he prays for the grace to ""go with the flow"". Patrick Moran's first collection was widely praised. Southword noted the poet's ""fine eye for the banal, for seemingly subtle shifts that can have huge implications""; while Poetry Ireland Review lauded ""a very well-crafted body of work, poetry that is always lyrical and on occasion truly startling"". 48928

122 McKenzie, Stephanie GRACE MUST WANDER

8vo 8" - 9" tall; 74 pages; In Stephanie McKenzie's second collection, grace wanders through snowdrifts and late nights and finds its way to Northern Ireland, Newfoundland, and the United States.

123 McLane, Maureen N. WORLD ENOUGH Poems
Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2010 Uncorrected Proof Softcover New 
0.65 x 8.25 x 5.5 Inches; 144 pages;

In World Enough, Maureen N. McLane maps a universe of feeling and thought via skyscapes, city strolls, lunar vistas, and passages through environments given and built. These poems explore how we come to know ourselves?sensually, intellectually, politically, biologically, historically, and anthropologically. Moving from the most delicate address to the broadest salutation, World Enough takes us from New England to New York to France to the moon. McLane fuses song and critique, giving us poetry as ?musical thought,” in Carlyle’s phrase. Shuttling between idyll and disaster, between old forms and open experiment, these are restless, probing, exacting poems that aim to take the measure of?and to give a measure for?where we are. McLane moves through many forms and creates her own, invoking the French Revolution alongside convolutions of the heart and revolutions of the moon. Shifting effortlessly between the species and the self, between the sentient surround and the peculiar pulse within, World Enough attests to experience both singular and shared: ?not that I was alive / but that we were.”

BlazeVOX [Books] 2010 1935402978 / 9781935402978 Softcover New 
0.26 x 9.25 x 7.5 Inches; 112 pages; 'No ideas but in things.' In lieu of abstraction and sentimentality, Anita Mohan presents 'real gardens' with real apperceptions in them. More inlooker than onlooker, she enlivens the flora and fauna of this volume with her being-in-the-landscape. In the mind's ear one can hear Stevens' beachcombing siren for whom, 'there never was a world, except the one she sang and, singing, made'. These pictorial love songs are the work of an imposingly august imagination. -Steven Felicelli, author of Notes Towards A Monograph of 'The Moment' Letters To An Albatross is a lush crosscurrent of peculiarly fine poetry. Her poems are as playful as they are crucial, whimsical and heartbreaking in a wide drifting landscape. Moving with a purpose her language circles "and then the fleet of rays fly / Past the drifting panga, lifting / Shining wide wings / Through the ancient face of water / Like golden sails." Her poems embody a ceaseless spirit in a work of great beauty and force, of intelligence and stark humility. This is a wonderful, relevant book of poetry. -Geoffrey Gatza, author of Kenmore: Poem Unlimited and Not So Fast Robespierre 48848
