Samenvatting

Many of the poems in Sean O’Brien’s new collection take their emotional tenor and imaginative cue from his acclaimed translation of Dante’s Inferno, and occupy a dark, flooded, subterranean world, as dramatically compelling as it is disquieting. Circumstances have compelled O’Brien to return repeatedly to the elegiac form, and The Drowned Book contains a number of powerfully moving poems written in memory of fellow poets and artists. The Drowned Book again shows O’Brien a master of the authoritative line, and underscores his pre-eminence among contemporary English poets.



Praise for Sean O’Brien’s verse translation of Dante’s Inferno:



‘Compelling, with a steady incandescence to the language’ Independent



‘All life is written in Dante’s burning pages, and Sean O’Brien is to be congratulated on his expert rehabilitation of a classic’ Spectator



‘Combines urgent readability with a muscular forcefulness’ The Economist

Recensie(s)

It's almost as though he's seeing into a kind of pool in which the past is there, held in a sort of suspension . . . exhilarating -- Peter Porter O'Brien's talent extends far beyond description . . . powerful, resonant and thought-provoking * Guardian *
