Description

In this career-defining book, the poems of Dennis O'Driscoll are gathered together for the first time. Beginning with Kist in 1982 and ending with the posthumous Update in 2014, the selection was made by O'Driscoll himself before his death in 2012 and includes revised, authoritative versions of some older poems as well as thirtythree hitherto uncollected: the definitive poetic ouevre.
