From the encompassing vision of home life in ‘Déjà Vu’ through the startling landscapes of a remembered Galway to the present day worlds of south county Dublin and the American east coast, ‘everything becomes new once more’. As Fiona Sampson remarked of Gerald Dawe’s Selected Poems — ‘Emotional intelligence will always distinguish the truly important poet.’

‘Serious, often grave, but inculcated with such sympathy and passion and affection that any obscurity is the enemy. It’s as if what Gerald Dawe has to tell us is so vital that clarity - such a virtue - is a moral matter.’ - Richard Ford

Mickey Finn's Air (Paperback)

Mickey Finn’s Air, Gerald Dawe’s eighth collection of poems, revels in how memory plays tricks with the passing of time as traces of the past are restored in the mind’s eye ‘like the torc’s beaten gold’. Bearing the loss of loved ones and the pressures ‘of the way things are’ Mickey Finn’s Air makes a ‘simple arc of sun’.
