Dennis O'Driscoll

The manuscript for this last book of poems by Dennis O'Driscoll (1953-2012) was discovered on his computer. In keeping with his previous work, Update weaves memoir into crisp observations on modern life and casts a wry gaze at contemporary Ireland. Readers will discover here a bracing assesment of bureaucracy, consumerism, and environmental calamity, contrasting with the intimacy of memory and intellect. O'Driscoll captures the fragility of life--human and otherwise--and grants a shimmering, bittersweet glimpse of mortality and the vivid pursuits that come before it.
