Michael Longley poetry from County Mayo and the Highlands

Winner of the 2017 PEN Pinter prize 
Shortlisted for the 2017 Forward Prize

Michael Longley lives in Belfast, but frequently visits Lochalsh where his artist daughter now lives. He will be reading from ‘Angel Hill’, his exuberant new collection, published by Jonathan Cape in June. Lakes and mountains, wild animals and flowers, moody seas and skies have for decades lit up his poetry.

In Angel Hill the imaginations of poet and painter intermingle and two exacting wildernesses productively overlap. Love poems and elegies and heart-rending reflections on the Great War and the Northern Irish Troubles add further weight to Michael Longley’s outstanding eleventh collection.  Angel Hill will undoubtedly delight this great poet’s many admirers.
