Forest Music is Susan Connolly's second full-length collection. It includes work from several chapbooks — Race to the Sea (1999), Ogham — Ancestors Remembered in Stone (2000), Winterlight (2002) and newer work published in journals such as Poetry Ireland Review, Cyphers, the SHOp, Shearsman, Southword, Crannog and The Stony Thursday Book.

 

Many poems in this collection depict Susan Connolly's personal encounter with her landscape. Living in Drogheda, close to the Boyne Valley, her poems celebrate the famous archaeological monuments of Knowth, Dowth and Newgrange alongside local landmarks — the Maiden Tower, the seawall at Baltray and the discovery in a back garden of a cobbled garden dating from the early nineteenth century.
