Art of Brian Coffey

A study of the Irish modernist poet, Brian Coffey (1905-95), whose work has always been regarded as difficult. This text aims to explain how the poems release their meaning and guide the reader in understanding the poet’s work. It includes early poems, the late long poems and Coffey’s translations from the French of poems by Gerard de Nerval, Rimbaud and Mallarme.
