Catching the Light: Views & Interviews
This fascinating series of literary views and interviews illuminates the coming of age of Belfast-born poet Gerald Dawe during the fifties and sixties in Northern Ireland, the literary and political worlds he discovered on moving to the Republic of Ireland in the early seventies, and his travels since, in Europe and other parts of the world, shadowed by the violent closing decade of the twentieth century and the beginning of the new century. Gerald Dawe has published seven collections of poetry, including The Morning Train, Lake Geneva, and Points West.
