The centenary of Patrick Kavanagh’s birth in 2004 provides the ideal opportunity to reappraise one of modern Ireland’s greatest poets. Lucid, various, direct and engaging, Kavanagh’s poems have a unique place in the canon. This new edition, now available in paperback, is the culmination of many years of work by Antoinette Quinn in creating authoritative texts for Kavanagh’s work – from his early works such as ‘Inniskeen Road: July Evening’ to such major pieces as ‘The Great Hunger’.
