Mickey Finn's Air
by Gerald Dawe
Mickey Finn's Air, Gerald Dawe's eighth collection of poems, revels in how memory plays tricks with the passing of time as traces of the past are restored in the mind's eye 'like the torc's beaten gold'. Bearing the loss of loved ones and the pressures 'of the way things are' Mickey Finn's Air makes a 'simple arc of sun'. From the encompassing vision of home life in 'Déjà Vu' through the startling landscapes of a remembered Galway to the present day worlds of south country Dublin and the American east coast, 'everything becomes new once more'. As Fiona Sampson remarked of Gerald Dawe's Selected Poems - 'Emotional intelligence will always distinguish the truly important poet'.
