From the publisher's blurb: "In The Water-colourist, his first collection of poems, Sebastian Barry responds to his joy in being and to the presence in his life of various family personages, his grandfather, a brother, who have, in varying ways, contributed to his encounters with life. He celebrates, too, places which have been influences on him, and his explorations of himself and of others who have created the memories of his youth. The Water-colourist introduces a new and significant voice to modern Irish poetry."
