Item description for Tulle (Salmon Poetry.) by Mary O'Donoghue...

The winning poetry collection in the inaugural Salmon Poetry Publication Prize 2001

"Mary O'Donoghue's debut collection introduces a remarkable new voice in Irish poetry. The range of that voice is matched by the integrity of tone and feeling which is evident throughout. The poems move easily from classical mythology and biblical references to contemporary street-talk with no diminution of rhetorical conviction. Like the character in 'Jezebel's Palms', O'Donoghue gets under the skin of the female characters whose disturbed lives she gives voice to with empathy and unflinching candour. She articulates the wit and suffering of the witches, gurners, saints and vestals and others who inhabit these poems in language that bristles like backbrushed velvet." LOUIS DE PAOR

"From the ancient limestone of her native Clare to classical mythology and Irish folklore, Mary O'Donoghue ranges far and wide to unearth her sources. Her work is driven by an elegant sense of form and by a cool, subversive attitude. Tulle is an luminous first book which will leap from its pages and devour you." EAMONN WALL

Powerful Poetry  Nov 26, 2003
This is where I just want to say in a deep husky voice 'If there's one book you gotta read all year...then it's Tulle'. It's that exciting a read from a richly talented poet. A friend mailed me this raving about it. His hype was on the mark. I will type 5 titles of poems randomly and bet you when I read over them they will be classics- 'Cattle Cars', 'Textures', 'If You See Kay', 'Trupi M'Leshon' and 'Embezzlemen'. Yes! I knew it, they are 5 classics- classics amongst classics. This collection is clever, funny, sad, sentimental, mocking of sentiment- everything! Bring on Book Number 2!!!
 
Blown Away!  Mar 6, 2003
Tulle is written by one of Boston's best young writers right now. It is written with confidence and is not afraid to toy with different plays on words. There is a thin line between success and failure when working like this. With 'Tulle' it's success all the way. My favorite poem was the witty 'Witches of Monin Na Gloigeann'. This poem conjures up so many chaotic images, I get the feeling that is what O'Donoghue intended. O'Donoghue skips gently but surely between the light side and the dark side. 'Bova' is very dark and despairing. "Is this the same book!?" I ask myself. With someone moving so comfortably through so many themes, I don't have to ask but only to definitely announce- "Mary O'Donoghue is the voice of the new generation!". I only hope that Tulle is not the last installment.
