"The trouble with these resonant visions is their interchangeability: is the post-historical condition the same in Offaly as it is for the Flemish navigator? Is standing outside history – or claiming to – a sufficient guarantee of authenticity?" Aingeal Clare on Harry Clifton • Guardian "Clifton is not averse to allowing some of his diction to dazzle, or some of his phrases to startle by their sound or their originality. Oddly enough, this emerges just as the poems themselves can seem more occasional, dictated by a change in seasons, or a visit to a place, or a memory, or a book. In other words, there is an interesting meeting between what is casual in its origin and what is then worked on, crafted, chiselled, considered, revised and offered in a tightened form." Colm Toibin • Irish Times
