The Irish for No

(1987)
A collection of poems by

 
 
'a marvellous work of art, part verse, part prose, part haiku, part beautifully controlled long, loose lines. It is about Belfast past and present and is full of surprises, savage and witty, human and extravagant. His voice is truly original, both intelligent and passionate.' - A S Byatt, The Sunday Times, Books of the Year'
'Carson is one of the most original poets now at work in this country . . . he is the master of the long line; these poems are manic, frightening and funny, and somehow manage to catch the tone of life in modern Belfast.' - John Banville, The Irish Times
'a quite exceptional and original talent . . . There is a continuous large effort under way here, one that may well turn out to be among the most enduring artistic products of Northern Ireland since 1968.' - Neil Corcoran, TLS
