Belfast Confetti

Ciaran Carson

About the book

In her third book of poetry, Ciaran Carson weaves together in a carefully sequenced volume prose pieces, long poems, lyrics, and haiku. His subjects include the permeable boundaries of Belfast neighborhoods, of memory, of public and private fear, and, indeed, of the forms of language and art. Ciaran Carson finds unexpected uses - constructive and destructive - of the building rubble of Belfast history. Rich in lore of place, these innovative and vividly fresh poems draw deeply on traditions—oral, local, and literary.
