Paula Meehan

Paper $15.95    |    978-1-910251-15-7    |    2017

"Meehan emerged from childhood in the inner city Dublin tenements to give voice to the disenfranchised everywhere, less in anger than with compassion and an intuitive understanding that, through verse, imbued their lives and memories with mythic dignity."—The Irish Times

Composed of eighty-one nine-line poems, Meehan’s extraordinary new collection is at once a free-form dance and a controlled meditation on the nature of memory, community, love, and poetry itself. Her celebration of the power of dream and of song is neither escape nor hermetic retreat but a means to navigate "the long night’s journey into day." A true citizen poet, Meehan begins her work in intimate feeling but is always focused on the world.
