Reviews - What do customers think about The Drowning of the Saints (Salmon Poetry)?

The Drowning of the Saints  Aug 6, 2008
The Drowning of the Saints is a stunning debut and introduces a young writer with a distinctive new voice, full of verve and promise. The collection is filled with sensual, lyrical and beautifully crafted poems, poems which are often infused with a dream-like magic and arouse a sense of longing, searching, and questioning. Whether it is a rumination on a gate to a farm, a painting by Breughel, the end of a love affair or the armada's wreckage off the West coast of Ireland, Perry infuses his work with a spiritual luminosity and a relentless search for meaning.

"The Drowning of the Saints is a remarkable triumph. The poems are a coalition of imaginative flair and formal discipline. Each poem bristles with life and longing, intelligence and wit. These are lines and stanzas and poems that signal wisdom beyond his youth. In this sense he is a prodigiously gifted poet. I feel he will distinguish himself as one of the most original of younger writers." Fred D'Aguiar

Paul Perry was born in Dublin in 1972. He won the Hennessy New Irish Writer of the Year Award in 1998. He received a B.A. in Comparative Literature from Brown University and has been a James Michener Fellow of Creative Writing at The University of Miami, and a C. Glenn Cambor Fellow of Poetry at The University of Houston. His work has appeared in numerous publications, including Poetry Ireland Review, Cyphers, TLS and The Best American Poetry 2000. He served as Writer in Residence for Co. Longford, from 2000-2002. In 2002, he won the Listowel Prize for Poetry. Currently, he is Writer in Residence for the University of Ulster.
