Published in order of first publication as far as possible, this selection ranges from initial offerings such as "Tinker's Wife" and "Inniskeen Road: July Evening" to his tragic masterpiece "The Great Hunger" (1942) and his celebratory later verse, "To Hell with Common Sense" and "Come Dance with Kitty Stobling", which show his increasing comic verve and detachment. The first comprehensive selection of Kavanagh's poetry to be published, this volume offers a timely reassessment of a poet unfairly neglected outside Ireland.
