Taking My Letters Back

A collection of poems by

`Taking My Letters Back' combines a selection of the best of Bolger's early work (often in freshly worked versions), along with two dozen poems written throughout the `90s which were never before been collected in book form. Combining poetry of lament and celebration, ghost voices and love poems, `Taking My Letters Back' completes the missing piece in that tapestry which has been the work of one of Ireland's most distinctive writers of the late 20th century. ""Perhaps only an Irish poet could risk the seeming sentimentality of such an attitude, and perhaps only an Irish poet would have the craft to make such an attitude reflect honest idealism rather than warm and fuzzy wishful thinking.""-Booklist
