From one book to the next, what links all of Eamon Grennan's poems is their devotion to the moment in all its textured complexity—to which his layered, animating language does full, surprising justice. His enduring project across three decades of work is grounded in his persistently lyrical commitment to luminous openings of the moment, whether this moment lives in the cherished, threatened environment of the family, in fraught erotic zones, in the wider world of landscape or that of political violence, or in the widest world of all, a world surrendered to natural and human transience and inescapable mortality.  Out of Sight gathers generous selections from Grennan's seven previous collections and thirty new poems. This is the definitive book by one of contemporary poetry's most sensuous and shimmering voices.

REVIEWS

Praise for Out of Sight

"Grennan, whose last new & selected volume, Relations, appeared in 1998, has spent a career moving between Poughkeepsie, N.Y., where he teaches at Vassar College, and the west country of his native Ireland, facing the Atlantic. Both locales have afforded ample material for this career-summing volume, which begins with Troubles—infused work from the 1980s that brings war into the home . . .  Grennan finds people's unfoldings in accretive observations of the natural world, but he's usually closely rather than expansively meditative: his imagery—famously striking, often erotic, and sometimes crossing over into violence—makes his short poems read like 'one stanchless wound of sound.' A pervading restlessness makes this book a pleasure to pick up in fits and starts, particularly in the later erotic poems, finding here the 'neat/ green and tea-brown trapezoids/ of grass and bog,' there the 'azzle-amber of the shirt you wore.' One gets the sense of a writer who bridles at limitation yet is acutely aware of its inevitability, who wants to reveal 'everything tucked in like a heart in its beating chest of bone/ so the whole body thrums with it.'"—Publishers Weekly

Stumble on, so, to true wakefulness, all dreams dissipated, and stop silenced on a seal-smooth rock half-buried in sand, knowing nothing but the burden of what you’ve seen, pondering the simple specific gravity of it . . .
