An Arid Season: New Poems

€12.99

Michael D Higgins’ An Arid Season is the distillation of over ten years’ work. Inspiring and evocative, this long-awaited new collection is reflective of the changes that were taking place, not just in the poet’s life, but also in the world at large.

‘It was a time,’ says the poet, ‘when I often felt that langauge was losing its meaning. Life was being commodified in all its aspects; values seemed out of fashion.’

Michael D HigginsAn Arid Season is the distillation of over ten years’ work. Inspiring and evocative, this long-awaited new collection is reflective of the changes that were taking place, not just in the poet’s life, but also in the world at large.

‘It was a time,’ says the poet, ‘when I often felt that langauge was losing its meaning. Life was being commodified in all its aspects; values seemed out of fashion.’

Discerning a residual hunger for the spiritual, Michael D Higgins probes our collective consciousness, investigating the nature of memory, of prophecy, exploring both our imagined and realised worlds.

‘The salt of tears is a deposit in memory of our sea beginnings: there is lodged the long sigh of all our time, lost in endless space.’
