Late is both an elegy for and a celebration of life in our century as we approach the end of the millennium. In the spirit and style of Michael Hamburger’s much-admired sequences Variations, Travelling and In Suffolk, it is a narrative meditation in a developing series of short passages. In some of his most musical and subtle lyric writing, it draws together the abiding concerns of his poetry: the cycles of the passage of time, the interrelation of past and present, of continuity and change, in both the natural and the social and historical worlds.
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
