Maurice Craig, Ireland's most distinguished architectural historian, was born in Belfast in 1919 and educated in Dalkey and at Shrewsbury School, Magdalene College Cambridge and Trinity College Dublin.
Though he is best known for his books of architectural history, most notably the celebrated Dublin 1660-1860, as a young man Maurice was a prolific and highly respected poet. His poems touch on the universal themes of love, loss, and the beauty of the natural and man-made worlds, and are written in a spare, clean style, in powerful language.
Poems is a remarkable collection that aims to introduce the work of this fine poet to a new generation of readers.
