Maurice Scully: Tig
Published June 2006
Paperback, 104pp, 8.5x5.5ins, £8.95 / $15
Maurice Scully is one of Ireland's most original poets, and most unusual. All of his work over the past 25 years has been part of one enormous project, under the umbrella title Things That Happen, which will be completed with the appearance of this volume, the final section of the whole work, and Sonata (the penultimate section, also to be published in 2006 by Reality Street Editions). The earlier parts of this large edifice are available as Five Freedoms of Movement (revised edition, Etruscan Books, 2002) and Livelihood (comprising five books and three interstices, Wild Honey Press, 2004). A criss-crossing of languages and cultures, and the point at which the personal life of the author intersects with the public domain, Tig is an absorbing book in its own right, as well as being the summation of one of the most interesting projects in recent Irish writing.
