The Course of Nature
Comments on stone
A major discovery for me, this was Joyce's first collection in some 18 years. I scurried back looking for earlier books and was similarly impressed by The Poems of Sweeny Peregrine. Based on an admittedly limited acquaintance so far (this book, Sweeny and Syzygy) I would have to say that Trevor Joyce is one of the major poets on either side of the Irish Sea, and that includes certain well-known names of both modernist and mainstream credentials.
