During the 1980s Michael Hamburger published both collected and selected editions of his poetry, but Roots in the Air is his first collection of new poems to appear for a decade. ‘Memorably disquieting’ was one reviewer’s verdict on his last collection, a response which the poems in this book will evoke in many readers. His work is profoundly engaged with both the natural and human world, its concerns are felt not fashioned, and his verse has a natural ease and personal rhythms which make it both distinctive and approachable.
Praise for Michael Hamburger 'O'Driscoll manages to get the reader as close to Hamburger as possible in one book. It feels very much like spending a week at your grandfather's house - getting to listen to all his stories, roaming through cupboards, reading the works hidden inside.'
Dominik Szczepaniak, DURA
