Poetry is a fascinating use of language. With almost a million words at its command it is not surprising that these Isles have produced some of the most beautiful, moving and descriptive verse through the centuries. In this series we look at each at individual Nations and how they are seen through the eyes and minds of our most gifted poets to bring you a unique poetry guide to that country. Ireland, for many a rugged romantic Isle has produced many fine poets through the Ages. They chronicle with clarity and purpose the landscape of the country and the character of its people into verse admired throughout the world. This volume brings together poets of the quality of WB Yeats, Oscar Wilde, Jonathan Swift, Katharine Tynan, Thomas More, Patrick Pearse and many others.

Many of the poems are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Portable Poetry. The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores. Among the readers are TP McKenna, Niamh Cusak, Dervla Kirwan, Ghizela Rowe. and Richard Mitchley
