Description

Conamara in the West of Ireland has a strange and beautiful landscape -a landscape of intense contrasts uniquely dependent on light and shade. In daylight, a subtle radiance of gentle colours envelopes the place. Yet on the threshold of darkness, the fading light reveals an almost haunted vista of mysterious beauty. In this exquisitely crafted collection of poetry, John 0' Donohue evokes the vital energy and rhythm of the Conamara landscape, engaging with earth, sky and sea, and the majestic mountains that silently preside over this glorious region. Here too, as he draws upon the ancient memory and history of this sacred place, hefocuses upon the power of language and the vagaries of human need and passion, tenderly revealing the fragile vulnerability of love and friendship.Written with penetrating insight and a deftness of touch, Conamara Blues offers a unique, imaginative vision of a landscape steeped in mystery and legend - a landscape of hope and possibility that is at once both familiar and unknown.
