This is a study of one of the most important poets of the mid 20th-century. At the time of his death, Denis Devlin was Irish ambassador to Italy. This book looks at Devlin’s work within the aftermath of the Irish literary revival and Anglo-American and French modernism and then relates it to the work of Devlin’s contemporaries (such as Thomas McGreevy, Brian Coffey and Samuel Beckett) and to modernism poets since his death.
