Description - Cries Of An Irish Caveman by Paul Durcan
Durcan brings his tender lyricism and incisive wit to bear on the themes of love and loss, life and death. The first section describes a near-death experience in Australia, which provides a starting point for reassessing his past relationships and loves. The second returns to Ireland, its people and places, the celebrated and the unknown. The third section is a meditation on his daughter's marriage, placing within an historical and sacramental context a very personal event. And finally, in some of his most daring and original writing, Durcan describes his own twentieth-century romance, replete with ecstasies and inevitable agonies, beauty and hope, but also brutality and self-abasement. Over the last 30 years, Paul Durcan has become one of the most highly regarded and popular poets in contemporary Ireland, celebrated both in his home country and internationally. Cries of an Irish Caveman is his most entertaining and original collection yet.
