A collection of contemporary poetry that throws itself into the discussion of Irish identity in relation to the world.

WINNER OF THE 2014 IRISH BOOK LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

Paul Durcan has been at the heart of Irish cultural life for over 40 years and his poetry has acquired a huge international following. Greetings to Our Friends in Brazil is his most challenging and engaging collection yet, one that addresses itself through Ireland and the Irish diaspora to the whole world beyond.

Reviews

Durcan’s must be the most capacious and generous mind in contemporary poetry: in the face of the rabid and murderous dark he finds always something or someone to celebrate

Theo Dorgan, Sunday Tribute

Paul Durcan’s Ireland is the one we inhabit. At times he is ready to celebrate the bizarre amd the ordinary; at other times he is full of a surreal rage against both order and disorder

Colm Toibin, Times Literary Supplement
