Poetry. Trevor Joyce is one of those Irish poets, in the line of James Clarence Mangan, Brian Coffey, and Samuel Beckett, whose work explores new fields and modes rather than dwelling in the familiar. He is a writer of great integrity and originality, his writing is both exciting and assured and his way of looking at the world is not arcane - J.C.C. Mays, The Recorder. His characteristic strengths are astonishing graces of language: he can fuse intricate argument with plain and lovely images and make all moving - Eavan Boland, Irish Times.
