Tipo de libro: Paperback
Gerard Fanning is one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary Irish poetry, "an enigmatic surveyor with an appetite for the exotic cultivar", as one reviewer has called him, a maker of taut yet limpid verse. Hombre: New and Selected Poems gathers the poet's choice of his three previous collections, together with twenty-five new poems which show him to be both spontaneous and inventive and, all the while, formally-grounded, full of what another reviewer has called "elegant intensity". 'Gerard Fanning's poems are perfectly pitched; their phrasing and tonal shape range from the use of implication and suggestion to pure clarity of statement. He is fascinated by exploration, and his poems too seem to explore the space around them, using subtle cadences and nuanced rhythm to create a poetry that is open and tactful but also highly-wrought and deeply serious.' -Colm TóibínAbout the Author:
Gerard Fanning was born in Dublin in 1952. He is a graduate of University College Dublin. He worked for a time in Barcelona before joining the Irish Civil Service. He has published three collections with the Dedalus Press: Easter Snow (1992), Working for the Government (1999), Water & Power (2004) and a chapbook, Canower Sound (2003) with the Shinbone Press. His awards include The Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, The Brendan Behan Award for Poetry and Literature bursaries from The Arts Council, Ireland. Fanning's poems have also been adapted by the composer Ian Wilson for his Harbouring Suite (2008). In 2013 a selection was published in Wake Forest University Press: Introductions 3.
