Eamon Grennan was the thirteenth poet in the Raymond Danowski Poetry . His Out of Sight: New and Selected Poems is forthcoming later this year.

Eamon Grennan was the thirteenth poet in the Raymond Danowski Poetry Library Reading Series and read in 2010. Grennan's books include Matter of Fact (2008); The Quick of It (2005); Still Life with Waterfall (2001), the recipient of the Lenore Marshall Award for Poetry from the American Academy of Poets; and Relations: New and Selected Poems (1998). Grennan's Leopardi: Selected Poems (1997) earned the 1997 PEN Award for Poetry in Translation.

Selected and New Poems. Whether his subject lies in the natural world or in the world of human relations, Eamon Grennan's poems engage at a level of probing intimacy. In richly wrought verbal webs of description and recognition, through combinations of hard facts and revelations, they attach us, by the quality of their attention, always more closely to the daily world. By belonging and not belonging-to Ireland, and to America (where he has lived for more than thirty years)-Grennan's poems also embody a many-facetted and doubly accented contemplation of the meanings.

His most recent volumes in America are Out of Sight: New and Selected Poems and There Now.

That gannet patrolling the tempest-tossed whirlblasted air off the foreshore beats southeast against the southeast gale to achieve elevation then banks, swoops low on slim stiff wings, to rise once more and scan open water: the snow-white whiter than sea-foam widespan of its two wings downgliding to shave dark water and rise again again on upbeating wings in the aerodynamic. His most recent volumes in America are Out of Sight: New and Selected Poems and There Now. Grennan has also won several Pushcart Prizes.

Few poets are as generous as Eamon Grennan in the sheer volume of delight his poems convey, and fewer still . Minneapolis, MN: Graywolf, 2016. Gallery Books, Ireland, 2012. Out of Sight: New & Selected Poems. Minneapolis, MN: Graywolf, 2010.

Few poets are as generous as Eamon Grennan in the sheer volume of delight his poems convey, and fewer still are as attentive to the marvels of the earth. To read him is to be led on a walk through the natural world of clover and cricket and, most of all, light, and to face with an open heart the complexity of being human. He received the PEN Award for Poetry in Translation in 1998. Grennan was nominated for the 2008 Poetry Now Award for his collection, Out of Breath. St. Paul, MN: Graywolf, 2008.

Born in Dublin, Eamon Grennan attended boarding school at a Cistercian monastery. He met Derek Mahon and Eavan Boland as an undergraduate at University College, Dublin, spent a year in Rome, and then came to the United States to earn his PhD at Harvard. He is the author of more than 10 collections of poetry, including There Now (2016), Out of Sight: New and Selected Poems (2010), Matter of Fact (2008), The Quick of It (2005), Still Life with Waterfall (2002), and Relations: New and Selected Poems (1998). Influenced by Williams, Hopkins, Patrick Kavanagh, Roethke, and Bishop, Grennan’s free verse lines often lean toward blank verse.

Comments:

Arashigore
A magical collection that is somehow also workmanlike and at times seems like a conversation among Irish poets because of the shoutouts to numerous practitioners. The best poems are focused on figures, men mostly: there is one involving roofers in New York City that is at once proud, muscular, erotic, and full of bravado.

Wonderful collection of Grennan's work which is insightful, sensual and profound. Ideal for those who hope to understand Ireland and human experience in an intimate way.

There is an old saying which goes, "There is no funeral without laughter, no wedding without tears." I was reminded of this quote a lot when reading poet Eamon Grennan's latest collection of poems titled, "Out of Sight."

Grennan is an attentive poet, dissecting a moment, an experience or a time period with a clean specificity. This doesn't mean his verse is clinical or cold; rather the details help draw the reader in, invites us to remember things that are pass unnoticed or forgotten most of the time: the sounds of robins returing to the trees after a rainstorm; the mesmerizing qualities of driving on quiet road in the dead of night; that one person we kissed in our teenage years who left us "speechless / at heart, for all [our] speeches."

But what I appreciate the most is the balance which Grennan strikes, finding the aforementioned tears at the wedding and laughter at the funeral. Grennan examines life with a careful eye, and exposes the beautiful in the ugly, the pain in the pleasure and peace in the chaos. For instance, what other poet could chose a topic like a decomposing rabbit in the woods, and then write that the "[b]ees and gilded flies / make the pulpy flesh / hum and squirm. // 'Oh love' they sing / in their nail-file voices, / 'we are becoming one another.'"

"Out of Sight" is a hefty book, filled with 250+ pages of poetry covering two decades of this poets life. I liked some of the sections better than others, as Grennan experiments with style, form and tone, but over all I felt very cared for as a reader. I felt like the poet was trying to engage me, to challenge me, to point things out for me to see. Every time I popped out of the subway after reading this book, it felt like I was seeing the world with new eyes.

Grennan's attention to language is as keen as his attention to the natural world and his place in it. His work becomes repetitive, but then he's not a poet hell-bent on breaking new ground at every venture. We get the life of bees and worms and birds and insects, and we get it again and again, and I'm willing to be grateful for the patient, attentive, ultimately celebratory repetition.

The selections from his 2005 collection THE QUICK OF IT particularly struck me.

A year in which I make the acquaintance of the poetry of both Ellen Bass and Eamon Grennan is a good year. And it's only July.
