This is the second edition, in a slightly larger format, of a book first published in 2001.

This extraordinary collection brings together the entirety of his work up to 2003 that Trevor Joyce wishes to preserve. Founder of the seminal New Writers’ Press in Dublin, Joyce is Ireland’s most stimulating late-modernist poet, unrepentantly engaging the global modernist tradition at a time when it would seem to many that Irish writers, whether in the Republic or the orphaned north, prefer to hunker down and be parochial. The book includes the early collections Sole Glum Trek, Watches andPentahedron and the splendid re-working of of the Buile Suibhne epic The Poems of Sweeny Peregrine, as well as the later masterworks Stone Floods and Syzygy, the former nominated for the 1995 Irish Times Literary Award for Poetry, the latter a formal tour-de-force previously only available as a limited edition chapbook. The volume concludes with more recent uncollected work of great power and ambition.
