    schema:description "Redshaw gathers twenty-one original essays on the influential Irish poet and novelist, which provide a critical context for Montague's Collected Poems (1995) and the tales and portraits in Company (2001). Montague played a pivotal role in the international evolution of Irish poetry from the late 1950s in Dublin through the worst years of the Troubles in Northern Ireland. Renowned for the Rough Field (1972), a book-length autobiographical poem on the North, Montague taught for two decades at University College, Cork, influencing a generation of Irish poets in the Republic- among them Tom McCarthy, Greg Delanty, and Nuala Ni Dhomhnaill. Author of 10 major collections of poems dating from Poisoned Lands (1961) through Smashing the Piano (2001), Montague was the first holder of the Ireland Chair of Poetry at Queen's University, Belfast; University College Dublin; and Trinity College, Dublin. Here, American, English, and European critics and scholars touch upon every aspect of Montague's essays, stories, and poetry. Redshaw offers a survey of the criticism and a descriptive checklist. A stunning tribute to a masterful poet with seminal essays by some of the finest critics of contemporary Irish poetry. -- Publisher description"@en ;
