Juxtaposing verse and image, A Poet's Dublin is a study of origin and influence from "a major Irish poet" (Edward Hirsch).

Written over years, the transcendent and moving poems in A Poet's Dublin seek out shadows and impressions of a powerful, historic city, studying how it forms and alters language, memory, and selfhood. The poems range from an evocation of the neighborhoods under the hills where the poet lived and raised her children to the inner-city bombing of 1974, and include such signature poems as "The Pomegranate," "The War Horse," and "Anna Liffey." Above all, these poems weave together the story of a self and a city--private, political, and bound by history. The poems are supported by photographs of the city at all times and in all seasons: from dawn on the river Liffey, which flows through Dublin, to twilight up in the Dublin foothills.
