Grey Gowrie

  • About
  • Reviews
  • Praise for Grey Gowrie 'The Domino Hymn' rages movingly against the dying of the light, covering heroic distances and charting epic struggles in the space of eighteen unflinching and atmospheric pages. Grey Gowrie's poems - utterly free from any querulous or self-pitying role - touch the reader's own heart as they give voice to the 'poor, bare, forked' individuals who are enmeshed in the tubes and wires of machine-age medicine.'
    Times Literary Supplement
    'Grey Gowrie's great Third Day: New and Selected Poems - a fine, stoical portrait of the age - fulfils all expectations'.
    Derek Mahon, the Irish Times, 29 November 2008
