Poetry. New work by this Irish writer (born in 1934) whose COLLECTED POEMS were published by Creighton University Press in 1994. Liddy edited the influential magazine, Arena, in the 1960's. John Ashbery has written of his work, I have enormous regard for James Liddy's poetry, and on the basis of my knowledge of contemporary poetry in Ireland, I consider him to be one of the most original among living Irish poets, perhaps the most. James Liddy is currently a Professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Perfectbound chapbook.
