For All We Know

(2008)
A collection of poems by

 
 
In Ciaran Carson's For All We Know, politics and psychology, history and love blend in a subtle, potent mix that recognizes how "the lie is memorized, the truth is remembered." It is a pas de deux of two lovers, of the very poems themselves, that moves between personal attraction and betrayal against memories of the Troubles and other historical events (the 60s, the Second World War). This mysterious book of dialogues evokes Paris, Dresden and other European cities, while citing Cold War thrillers, fairy stories, popular music, and the art of the fugue. Ciaran Carson is one of the most versatile and imaginative contemporary poets writing in English. For All We Know is a virtuoso display of his powers.
