BeschreibungIrish poet Greg Delanty presents a series of poems that explore the birth of a child. These poems log the days before and after a child is born, detailing the wonder and trepidation of parents, the growth of the child, and speculation on the soul and spirit. Written from the vantage point of a father--his hopes, fears, awe, and perplexity--these poems register the seen and unseen interconnections of place, people, the natural world, and the continuity of the past with the present and the future.
PortraitGREG DELANTY was born in Cork, Ireland in 1958, and now lives for most of the year in America, where he teaches at St Michael's College, Vermont. He has received numerous awards, including the Patrick Kavanagh Award, the Allan Dowling Poetry Fellowship, and the Austin Clarke Centenary Poetry Award. In 1999 he was a prizewinner in the National Poetry Competition. He has received an Irish Arts Council bursary, and has been widely anthologised.
Pressestimmen""Cork-born Delanty writes poems that are wordily appealing the way that Hopkins and late Auden [appeal]."
