Ann Egan is a multi-award winning poet whose prizes include: Writers’ Week Listowel, The OKI Prize, and The Cecil Day Lewis Prize. In her fourth publication, Telling Time, Egan is a perceptive and detailed nature poet, attentive in what she observes – the flight of birds, the growth of flowers, changing moods. Drawing inspiration from the landscape of the Irish midlands, Egan responds to what she sees with quiet and rhythmic control. Reflective, often spiritual, her observations hint at hidden fears and regrets at unfulfilled possibilities.
Telling Time brings together the varied body of Egan’s new work, where Nature is the pivotal and predominant feature, creating a comprehensive collection that is immediately arresting.
Praise for Ann Egan
‘Ann Egan’s distinctive voice is reflective and tender… she rises above personal loss, merging her sensibility with the natural landscape, which she continues to interpret and to claim’ Maurice Harmon
‘Ann’s achievement is that she takes us, poem by poem, to the heart of the mystery of life itself’ Joan McBreen
