Richard Tillinghast is one of the best known of his generation of American poets, and has long and strong associations with Ireland where he has lived for extended periods on a number of occasions. His wide-ranging Selected Poems is introduced by the late Dennis O’Driscoll.
“From the earliest poems gathered here, written in the 1960s, through to poems first published in 2008, Tillinghast has crafted works of great beauty on a wide range of themes and subjects: they “Archaeologise the ordinary”, as he puts it in one late poem, but he is also a poet who “Sing[s] songs of the Machine Age”…. [T]his volume of Selected Poems from the Dedalus Press is the perfect introduction for those who have not yet become acquainted with his … work.”
