Captain Lavender by Medbh McGuckian ( Book )
7 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Readers of Captain Lavender, especially if they are among the enthusiastic followers of the four previous volumes, will find McGuckian here, for various reasons, easing into clarity, even relaxing into a vulnerable openness. First, as do other truly innovative writers, McGuckian has taught us to read her vision of the world. Secondly, McGuckian's recent experiences teaching political prisoners - self-styled "saviors" of their causes - enter indirectly into many of these poems, particularly in section two. As her comment on this volume, McGuckian chose as epigraph a statement from Picasso's letters: "I have not painted the war...but I have no doubt that the war is in...these paintings I have done.""--BOOK JACKET
Selected poems, 1978-1994 by Medbh McGuckian ( Book )
10 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Generous selections from each of Medbh McGuckian's five books serve as an introduction to this gloriously gifted- and pioneering - poet, as a stock-taking moment to reconsider her luxuriant constructions, and as a welcome occasion to learn further how to receive the signals of her opulent imagination. The sensual, rhapsodic implications of her early work and the engagement of more recent poems with the politics of her native province represent a convincing vision. Selected Poems marries intellectual and emotional courage with vital language, startling but appropriate images, and beguiling art

The soldiers of year II by Medbh McGuckian ( Book )
3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Her language is like the inner lining of consciousness, the inner lining of English itself, and it moves amphibiously between the dreamlife and her actual domestic and historical experience as a woman in late-twentieth-century Ireland. --Seamus Heaney

Had I a thousand lives by Medbh McGuckian ( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The graph of this memorial collection, honouring the bicentenary of the resistance organizers Robert Emmet and Thomas Russell (both were executed in 1803), and what Dante calls their willingness to be unmade, is rooted in the consequent loss of Irish identity throughout the nineteenth century and concludes in meditations on the concentration camps of modern Europe." "Images of mourning and tribute, addressing the erosion of language and recent ceasefires in the North, permeate the nervous system of the book. Above all, Had I a Thousand Lives weighs the morality of its heroes' compulsion towards self-sacrifice in the cause of political advancement."--Jacket
