About the Book

The Mrs Power referred to in the title of Fergus Allen's third collection is just one of the vividly realized figures, who inhabit the Ireland of its author's childhood and continuing obsession. By turns comic and grim, governed by an unmistakably original musical sense, the poems in Mrs Power Looks Over the Bay show their author writing to more eloquent purpose than ever before.
