Michael Hartnett Collected Poems {Limited Edition}

Collected Poems {Limited Edition}
Hartnett, Michael
Published by The Gallery Press, 2001

Beautiful hardback copy in matching slipcase. This is Number 22 of a limited edition of 125 copies. Michael Hartnett s death, at the age of 58, robbed poetry readers of one of Ireland s beloved authors. His Collected Poems represents a body of work which is etched indelibly in contemporary literature. Seamus Heaney noted his focus and intensity . . . He followed his own impulse and never had his eye on any audience. Lovable yet separate, operating within his own field of force. I ll never forget reading his first short hypnotic poems in the early sixties; they had a kind of Orphic throb, as if a new Lorca had emerged from Newcastle West. In fact, Michael shared Lorca s ability to combine avant-garde daring with native tradition; he took the boldest of technical and emotional risks, living in and through and for his poetry to the end.
