Description

Handsel Press, 2019. 44 pages. Paperback.

The meaning and glory which infuses Creation is the dominant theme of this poetic sequence, the full English version of which has not been hitherto published. The author’s mother – Catherine Nugent (1930-89) – was a talented soprano singer with a deep appreciation for the natural world. She died of cancer in November 1989, having just turned 59.

'This remarkable poem, written in memory of the author’s mother, offers a penetrating, symbolically rich exploration of life’s ultimate issues. Distinctive reflections on light and darkness, joy and grief, will engage and nourish readers in Gaelic and English who find themselves asking questions about the meaning and purpose of life.’ – Angus Morrison

This sequence was first published in Gaelic only in 1991 by the Department of Celtic, University of Glasgow.
