The Statues of Emo Court

The Statues of Emo Court by Pat Boran is a pocket-format, extended lyric, accompanied by the poet’s own images, an attentive looking outward at a time of loss and separation.

Children adore them, adults seem blind,
the wildlife are all devotees:
the squirrels and beetles, the butterflies,
the crows that confer in the trees …

Spiders spinning webs in their limbs,
moss on their shoulders and knees,
as if they were dreaming, the statues of Emo
are out here to practise Tai Chi.



A Man is Only as Good by Pat Boran cover - Dedalus Press, poetry from Ireland and the world

A Man Is Only As Good

A Man Is Only As Good is a pocket-sized introduction to the poetry of award-winning Irish poet and writer Pat Boran, drawing on five previous full-length collections and including the late Dennis O’Driscoll’s prose introduction to the poems. Described as “a writer of great tenderness and lyricism” (Agenda, UK), Boran makes heartfelt, deceptively simple poems that are at once “local and international, personal and scientific, full of wisdom and wry humor” (Irish Literary Supplement, USA).

Waveforms: Bull Island Haiku

Pat Boran’s haiku sequence (or rensaku) celebrates the 200-year old island in Dublin Bay.
[A]n exquisitely designed pocket-sized book … Pat Boran has rendered the small and not so small world of Bull island with precision, thoughtfulness and sheer easy artistry.  Employing the ‘venerable form’ of the haiku, he has enlivened it and captured the island. Just as the island appeared out of the blue two hundred years ago, it embodies, with its ecosystem and day-trippers, a certain fragility and transience applicable to all of us.
