In The Deep Heart's Core, some 100 Irish poets revisit a favorite, key, or touchstone poem of their
own and offer a short commentary on its impact. The result is an illuminating, thought-provoking,
and unique anthology that offers a rare glimpse into the thinking, feeling, and craft behind the finished poems. The Deep Heart's Core is both an ideal introduction to contemporary Irish poetry for the general reader and a handbook for the aspiring practitioner or student.
