Greg Delanty's seven collections, brought together in a single volume, along with previously uncollected poems, reveal his resourcefulness and engaging wit. Delanty explores common experiences -- family life, love, friendship, the natural world and the political world -- in unexpected ways. He weaves together the idioms of his native Cork with the language of modern America. The poems range over Ireland, the United States and India, drawing on their different inheritances. Delanty's poetry is a sequence of metaphors, evoking the subtle interconnections of past and future, people and places.

This volume includes Cast in the Fire (1986), Southward (1992), American Wake (1995), The Hellbox (1998), The Blind Stitch (2001) The Ship of Birth (2003), and the most recent collection Aceldama, published here for the first time.
