Many of the poems in Sean Oâ€™Brienâ€™s new collection take their emotional tenor and imaginative cue from his acclaimed translation of Danteâ€™s Inferno, and occupy a dark, flooded, subterranean world, as dramatically compelling as it is disquieting. Circumstances have compelled Oâ€™Brien to return repeatedly to the elegiac form, and The Drowned Book contains a number of powerfully moving poems written in memory of fellow poets and artists. The Drowned Book again shows Oâ€™Brien a master of the authoritative line, and underscores his pre-eminence among contemporary English poets.
