The rough field by John Montague( Book )

38 editions published between 1972 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The sixth edition of this major modern poetic sequence concludes with a revised and expanded section of notes. Since its publication in 1972, The Rough Field has been praised as the most significant attempt in poetry to understand Northern Ireland's troubled history. The New York Review of Books called it a kind of 'state of the nation' poem ... astonishingly successful; moving, too, and as soundly crafted as the rosewood fiddle which seems to play with mourning sweetness in its margins. With notes by Thomas Dillon Redshaw. --Wake Forest University Press

‘The long hangar of the turf shed faces the Broad Road where cars whine. There our winter warmth is stored . . .' For more than half a century John Montague has brought a lively diversity of voice and experience to Irish poetry. ‘He is,' as John Carey wrote in The Sunday Times, ‘virtually Ireland's poet laureate . . . His best poems are all autobiographical, and mostly about his aunts' farm in County Tyrone . . . Splinter-sharp, they go straight to the heart, and catch in the memory like burrs.' Speech Lessons, his latest collection, reprises the great themes of his work — his own, his
