Illuminating the work of a writer whose achievement and influence is increasingly recognized as central to modern poetry in English, this record is a celebration of the diversity and vitality of Louis MacNeice’s writing. With contributions by fellow poets and critics—such as Neil Corcoran, Paul Farley, Leontia Flynn, Derek Mahon, Peter McDonald, and Clair Wills among others—it features a memoir by MacNeice’s son, the late Dan MacNeice, and various biographical accounts. More than a retrospective work of criticism, this compilation also offers insight into MacNeice’s complex political awareness and his ability to bring historical moments to life.
