Sinopsis: Poetry. WHAT'S IN STORE is Trevor Joyce's first full-length book since the publication of his collected poems, with the first dream of the fire they hunt the cold (2001). For this volume, the author has shaped eight years' worth of work--individual poems, extended sequences, translations from the Irish, Chinese, and other languages--into a continuous booklength structure. These poems find Joyce reaching out towards a jarringly wide range of styles and voices, from the tart lyricism of his workings of European folksongs to the ferociously dense collage/inscription of "STILLSMAN." Brought together as a book, the poems take on further meanings: WHAT'S IN STORE is at once a Borgesian guide to the history, customs and scientific discourse of an unknown country, and an Oulipian textual machine, whose workings by turns terrify and exalt. "This is one of my favorite poets anywhere. His poems have the clear, austere and impersonal ring of great translations. They are archetypal, they are strange"--Fanny Howe.
About the Author: Trevor Joyce (born 26 October 1947) is an Irish poet, born in Dublin. He co-founded New Writers' Press in Dublin in 1967 and was a founding editor of NWP's The Lace Curtain; A Magazine of Poetry and Criticism in 1968. Early books include Sole Glum Trek (1967), Watches (1968), Pentahedron (1972) and The Poems of Sweeny Peregrine (1976). The last of these is a version of the Middle-Irish Buile Shuibhne, well known from Seamus Heaney's later translation in Sweeney Astray (1983). After a near-total silence for twenty years, he resumed publishing in 1995 with stone floods, followed by Syzygy and Without Asylum (1998).
