This is the first collection of poems by Gerard Beirne who is already well known from individual poems published widely in Ireland and abroad. The poems are uniquely imaginative and strikingly original, rooting themselves in the landscape - and the forces that shape landscape - to explore the inherent tensions between spirituality and physicality. The religious and the corporeal merge with and emerge from this vast territory as they seek to discover the extent of their boundaries.
