ANNE-MARIE FYFE & C.J. DALLAT
Thanks to a connection made by poet Tess Gallagher, two fine Irish poets, Anne-Marie Fyfe and C.J. Dallat, will read here as part of a swing through the western U.S. Anne-Marie Fyfe is here with a recent collection, House of Small Absences (Seren Books). “Anne-Marie Fyfe’s poetry is taut, eloquent, and deeply felt. Her poems are haunted by what the past does to the present, and by the physical relics of that past which is only relayed in snatches.” - Helen Dunmore. C.J. Dallat’s most recent collection is The Year of Not Dancing (Blackstaff). “These are brittle, icy elegies…a wonderful collection.” - Poetry London. “Redemptive in its vision…a searchingly intelligent exploration of the enterprise of writing poetry of witness.” - Thumbscrew.
