Edited and introduced by poet and literary executor Hugh McFadden, a generous overview of the work of a poet and critic who played a key role in the Irish literary scene in the 1960s and ’70s.

“John Jordan was conscious of the general sense of malaise that pervaded post-war Europe. Some of the poems from the 1960s and ’70s come close to expressing a sense of weltschmerz (universal sorrow)… [Others] are poems of pity and terror, and are truly haunting reflections on the nature of suffering, the mystery at the heart of forgiveness, and the question of redemption.”
— Hugh McFadden, from the Introduction

“These can be very dark poems full of disturbing images and negative emotions yet expressed with eloquence and lyricism. With a useful introduction by the editor, here is an excellent representative collection.”
