Slower by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Slower, Andrew McNeillie's third collection, meditates on personal and natural history, nation states and mental states, violence, religion and poetry. It treats too of personal bereavement, and of love and marriage. The poem sequences at its core make connections between places, times and events, and meditate on continuities."--BOOK JACKET
Nevermore by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

4 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nevermore is an elegy for lost times and threatened things. It celebrates recollection and the 'immortality of youth', and youth's passions: for natural history for the naive curiosity and lust of adolescent 'love', for adventuresome escape and for the elusive prize of poetry itself. The poems traffic across borders, between the 1950s and 1960s and the present, between Wales, Scotland and Ireland, fish and fowl, coastal town and wilderness, material realities and transcendent dreams, and confused claims of cultural identity, Welsh and Scottish and neither. Nevermore speaks from a world where family as rural tribe, rooted in place, has given way to a rootless diaspora, its history at risk of erasure, for worse, and for better."--Jacket
In mortal memory by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

6 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joyful, elegiac, and immediate, these lyric and often celebratory poems engage personal and natural history, nation-states and mental states, violence, religion, and poetry itself. An ecologically focused collection, each poem affirms life as all-becoming, dwelling on metaphors such as mountains and valleys, the changing seasons, and the vastness of the sea. Divided into two parts??Song in Winter," a collection of unrepentantly self-indulgent verse, and?At Sea," containing extended tributes to George Campbell, W.S. Graham, J.M. Synge, and others?these astoni
Winter moorings by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrew McNeillie's sixth collection returns to the sea and its immensity as a metaphor for fate. It also revisits the British and Irish archipelago (?For which read a figure for my heart. / For which read too a figure for time's hurt'), following a north-western trajectory from the Aran Islands to the Hebrides. The natural world is seen here in both its beauty and its indifference to human beings (?There's many a thing more lasting than a person'). From a version of?The Seafarer' to an elegiac play?for sounds and voices' retelling the story of an English airman drowned off Aran in World

An Aran keening by Andrew McNeillie( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An Aran Keening tells of a time before electricity and landing strips, a time of real poverty for many. Island life was, in both mind and body, more stark and more dramatic then; it stood much closer to the candle- and horse-powered nineteenth century than to the digital twenty-first. McNeillie fished and trapped for his food - his accounts of his methods are among the most dazzling passages in the book - and writes with great love, but without a trace of romanticism, about the natural world of Aran. With extraordinary sensitivity and subtlety, this gifted writer recounts the awkward but ultimately enriching interactions between his youthful self and the people of Inishmore. An Aran Keening commemorates both the immortality of youth, in all its courage, folly, and quick tenderness of heart, and the passing of a world."--Jacket
