"Hare Soup", Dorothy Molloy's first collection of poems, was published by Faber in 2004, just weeks after her sudden and untimely death. Among her papers a group of further unpublished poems was discovered, which continue the concerns of Hare Soup, but include a group of poems written about her last illness. "Gethsemane Day" brings together a selection of Dorothy Molloy's posthumous poetry, all of which was composed within a concentrated span of time. It displays all the satirical verve and lyric drive of "Hare Soup" (beginning with a poem on Barbie dolls), but modulates into a final section of lyrics which confront her illness and imminent death with harrowing lucidity.
