The Ice Age

by Paul Farley

The Ice Age Synopsis

Paul Farley's debut collection, The Boy From the Chemist is Here to See You, was one of the most celebrated debuts of the nineties. The poems in The Ice Age are as engaged and engaging as ever, but also display a new philosophical depth: Farley's gift is to uncover the evidence so often overlooked by less attentive observers, finding - in childhood games, dental records and dog-eared field guides - those details by which we are proven and elegized. The Ice Age will only enhance Farley's reputation as one of the most formally gifted and imaginative poets to have emerged in recent years.
