The 30th Poiema poetry collection is The Book of Kells by Barbara Crooker. Published December 13, 2018.
Barbara Crooker is the author of eight poetry collections, including Gold which appeared in the Poiema Poetry Series in 2013. Her new book is inspired by the ninth century manuscript of the four Gospels known as The Book of Kells, and by the time she spent researching and writing in Ireland.
“She gives us that long ago Ireland, then today’s as seen through the feeling eyes of a poet on retreat. This book is a wonder, a departure from Crooker’s celebrated domestic work, and gloriously so,” says Greg McBride, the editor of Ireland’s Innisfree Poetry Review.
