'The Great Poet, Dave Lordan'
Lost Tribe of the Wicklow Mountains is the third essential collection from one of Ireland's leading public poets; another artistically groundbreaking contribution to Ireland's conversation on a wide range of urgently important issues. In poems that will astound everyone who takes up the challenge of reading and engaging with them, Lordan once again confounds those who would separate political engagement from literary innovation. Lordan combines a beautiful and various music of words with visionary truth-telling.
