One of Ireland’s outstanding critics and a notable poet in his own right, Dennis O’Driscoll (1954 – 2012) wrote poems that were true, funny, and wonderfully musical. His forty years working in Ireland’s Revenue and Customs service informed his work greatly. Beloved by those who knew him personally and by fans of his work, he was considered 'a generous, caring and witty man'. President Michael D. Higgins noted that O'Driscoll was 'held in the highest regard not only by all those associated with Irish and European poetry.' In addition to numerous essays and books of criticism, O'Driscoll produced nine poetry collections in his lifetime and remained a European as well as an Irishman in temper and stature. This career-defining collection brings together the work of one of the greatest poets of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.
