'Something Secret and Still': Silence in the Poetry of Eamon Grennan

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Previous criticism of the Irish-American poet Eamon Grennan has focused on his depictions of the natural world. Through a comparison with the French poet Yves Bonnefoy, this essay explores Grennan's concerns with the failure of language and highlights the way his poetry reveals the world through notions of silence and absence.
