Collected Poems

(2008)
A collection of poems by

 
 
Ciaran Carson's Collected Poems gathers work from eight collections. From the formal and thematic traditions of his earlierst work, The New Estate (1976), the energetic long lines of The Irish for No (1987) and Belfast Confetti (1989), to the formal adroitness of Opera Et Cetera (1996), The Alexandrine Plan (1998) and The Twelfth of Never (1998), Carson has shown himself to be an extraordinarily adaptable poet. In Breaking News (2003), this master of the long line employs two- and three-syllable lines to alter the tempo, the time of his narrative, and the distinction between separate wars and eras. Carson's 2008 volume For All We Know is a pas de deux of personal attraction and betrayal set against the memories of the Troubles as well as against other previous historical events (the 60s in Paris, the Second World War). It seems that with each volume Carson invents anew the very ground from which his poetry springs. Collected Poems ensures the poet's place at the cutting edge of contemporary art.
