Although still undervalued, Brian Coffey (1905-1995) is an important figure in Irish poetry. He was one of a small number who rejected the high style of Yeats and proceeded from an independently established, yet coherent aesthetic, one influenced by Eliot, Joyce, and Beckett. The non-mimetic mode of his poetry, which relies as much upon sound as it does upon sense for its principal effects, poses particular problems for readers. The perspective that Coffey adopts on Irish culture and history is certainly unique, and the values that inform his point of view are moral rather than political which caused hin to fail to find a large readership in Ireland. Nevertheless, a growing band of readers in Ireland, Britain, and the U.S. (he taught for a while at the University of St Louis), now regard him as one of the finest poets Ireland has produced since Yeats. This groundbreaking and exciting introduction will enlighten those familiar with Coffey's work and will introduce him to a new generation of readers.
