Michael Longley has long been acknowledged as one of our greatest living poets: Seamus Heaney once described him as ‘a keeper of the artistic estate, a custodian of griefs and wonders’.
Michael has produced twelve collections of poetry. Angel Hill was published in June 2017. 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 collection. Angel Hill will undoubtedly delight this great poet’s many admirers.
