Making space: new & selected poems
Francis Harvey is a nature poet par excellence. He searches and investigates the Irish landscape in such a way and with such love that any visitor to the country, particularly Fermanagh in the North and Donegal in the republic, will know and understand the unique qualities of these environs. This collection brings together a large selection of his previously published work, with nearly one-third of the book, new poems.
