Nevermore by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nevermore is an elegy for lost times and threatened things. It celebrates recollection and the 'immortality of youth', and youth's passions: for natural history for the naive curiosity and lust of adolescent 'love', for adventuresome escape and for the elusive prize of poetry itself. The poems traffic across borders, between the 1950s and 1960s and the present, between Wales, Scotland and Ireland, fish and fowl, coastal town and wilderness, material realities and transcendent dreams, and confused claims of cultural identity, Welsh and Scottish and neither. Nevermore speaks from a world where family as rural tribe, rooted in place, has given way to a rootless diaspora, its history at risk of erasure, for worse, and for better."--Jacket

In mortal memory by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Mortal Memory is a collection of lyric poems, celebratory if often melancholy, both elegiac and ironic. Affirming that life is 'all becoming' McNeillie mourns what that means in terms of loss and sorrow at time passing. The sea is a powerful presence, its meaning drawn both from the northern landscapes in which McNeillie's work is rooted, and from the work of French poets, from Baudelaire and Hugo to Rimbaud and Corbière. The poems pitch up and down across formalities, against the idea of purity, while sustaining a rhyming, singing line
Winter moorings by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrew McNeillie's most powerful collection to date returns to the subject of the sea and uses its immensity as a metaphor for fate. It celebrates the natural beauty of the British and Irish archipelago, following a northwestern trajectory from the Aran Islands to the Hebrides. The natural world is seen here in both its beauty and its indifference to human beings. From a version of "The Seafarer" to an elegiac play "for sounds and voices" that retells the story of an English airman drowned off Aran in World War II, these poems speak of lives and deaths across the reaches of history

An Aran keening by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Aran Keening tells of a time before electricity and landing strips, a time of real poverty for many. Island life was, in both mind and body, more stark and more dramatic then; it stood much closer to the candle- and horse-powered nineteenth century than to the digital twenty-first. McNeillie fished and trapped for his food - his accounts of his methods are among the most dazzling passages in the book - and writes with great love, but without a trace of romanticism, about the natural world of Aran. With extraordinary sensitivity and subtlety, this gifted writer recounts the awkward but ultimately enriching interactions between his youthful self and the people of Inishmore. An Aran Keening commemorates both the immortality of youth, in all its courage, folly, and quick tenderness of heart, and the passing of a world."--Jacket
