Présentation de l'éditeur

The centenary of Patrick Kavanagh's birth in 2004 provides the ideal opportunity to reappraise one of modern Ireland's greatest poets. From a harsh, humble background that he himself described so brilliantly, Kavanagh burst through immense constraints to redefine Irish poetry - a poetry appropriate for a fully independent country, both politically and culturally. Moving beyond Irish verse's preoccupation with history, national politics and identity, he turned to the land and scenery of his native Inniskeen, portraying the closely-observed minutiae of everyday rural and urban life in an uninhibited, groundbreaking style. Lucid, various, direct and engaging, Kavanagh's poems have a unique place in the canon and a unique accessibility.

This major new edition is the culmination of many years of work by Antoinette Quinn in creating authoritative texts for Kavanagh's poetry - from his early works such as 'Inniskeen Road: July Evening' to his masterpiece, the epic 'The Great Hunger', allowing us to see the development of Kavanagh's genius as never before.

Biographie de l'auteur

Patrick Kavanagh was born in Inniskeen, County Monaghan, in 1904. His verse collections included Ploughman and Other Poems (1936), A Soul for Sale and Other Poems (1947) and Come Dance with Kitty Stobling (1960). He also wrote the novel Tarry Flynn (1948) and his autobiography The Green Fool (1938). He died in 1967.

HASH(0x8bfd8d98) étoiles sur 5 Shall we be thus for ever? 30 novembre 2001
Par Michael Sherlock - Publié sur
Format: Broché
What a pity that the greatest of the Irish poets has not yet taken his rightful place in the higher places of learning in this country. As a fellow rural Irishman I have always considered Kavanagh to be 'my reality poet' who had, nevertheless, an extraordinary insight into the drawingrooms or cesspools of the 20th century Irish Catholic mind. His poem Lough Derg is without a doubt not just a poem but a vivid painting with words. 'They come to Lough Derg to fast and pray and beg
With all the bitterness of nonentities, and the envy of the inarticulate when dealing with the artist'. In the same poem he writes in reference to Irish neutrality during the Second World War,'All Ireland that froze for want of Europe' and froze from an ice-cold vision of DeValera. Read over and over again.This poem like many others are works of extraordinary perception and cultural analysis.. For many years I myself have searched for a definition of culture, you know, that something that is supposed to make us the same or different, but alas. In 'Memory of Brother Michael' I find: 'Culture is always something that was. Something pedants can measure, Skull of bard,thigh of chief, Depth of dried up river. Shall we be thus for ever? Shall we be thus for ever? It appears vey likely.

HASH(0x8bfd8dec) étoiles sur 5 Of Dreams and Reality 18 décembre 2000
Par Warrick Wynne - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Patrick Kavanagh seemed to me something completely new when I read this collection. In a country whose poetic voice was governed by the genius of Yeats for so long, Kavanagh comes along as a genuine alternative; of the common man, or the country village and the pub and the field. Kavanagh is no mere realist though; his poems are sometimes mythic and beautiful as well.

Having read the entire collection from cover to cover, I would have to say that there is much to interest the student of poetry. "The Great Hunger" is a very powerful early work. In some ways, I think that Kavanagh the poet lived in the shadow of that one achievement. Did Kavanagh rise to his potential? He might say that he did not. Was he too caught up in the image of being a poet? I think not. Did he put too many hopes in poetry as a means of financial salvation? Perhaps. However, whatever else Kavanagh's work is, it is REAL. The world he writes about is real. The cultures of ivory tower and religion that he often rails against are not as real as life is for the average person. This is the work's strongest suit. I would say this collection is more than worth a tour, but be prepared for much bitterness--and, to be fair, some occasional light hearted frivolity--and have a pint of Guiness after.

HASH(0x8bfdb60c) étoiles sur 5 An FYI on editions -- there is a better collection available 13 avril 2013
Par A.E.M. Baumann - Publié sur
Format: Broché
To let you know, there was a _Selected Poems_ printed in 1996 by Penguin, but it was only printed in the UK and Canada. Obviously, with some thirty years difference in publication date, the Selected is a better collection (this one is missing some of the more important poems). There is also a much thicker 2005 _Collected_ by Penguin, also only UK and Canada. To note, if you search Amazon with "Kavanagh Selected" it does not generally come up in the search results (curiously); however, it does come up if you search only "Patrick Kavanagh." I still do not find the 2005 _Collected_ though. (Both edited by Antoinette Quinn; Selected ISBN: 0-14-118348-9; Collected ISBN: 0-141-186-933.)

HASH(0x8bfdb6f0) étoiles sur 5 Kavanagh's poetry stands the test ot time 15 avril 2013
Par clogcathy - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Poetry about the indomitable spirit of the Irish and how they fought for their freedom. Less well known here, Kavanagh has been one of Ireland's gifted poets, unfortunately overshadowed by W.B. Yeats. Beautiful poetry for anyone to read.
