Sometimes minor poets write masterpieces... Feb 5, 2005
I thought of this book today when I heard a great photographer talk about how he didnt realize when he was young that the subject for great art was what was right in front of you and that you knew best. 30 years ago, I spent 6 months reading and re-reading this book as one of the core demonstrations of my thesis that Irish poets only started to write great poems when they moved off the broad, universal themes (eg, love, death, war) and wrote about what they knew best and thought most passionately about - their country. Montague is no-one's idea of a household name (forgotten in the celebration of his contemporary, Seamus Heany) but this is as good a book of poetry as has been written by an Irishman after WWII. Treat yourself and find a copy.
