About this event

A Selected Poems is the occasion for a retrospect and a survey, trying to detect the shape of an oeuvre to date, identify its themes and directions. The centrifugal ‘moving out’ exemplified by John Mcauliffe’s developing poetry – a geographical, thematic, prosodic and formal expansion – is fascinating, and as a poet-critic he is able to see his own work in helpful ways. Join John as he talks to Michael Schmidt about this landmark collection.

John McAuliffe has published five books with The Gallery Press, most recently Selected Poems in Oct 2021 and The Kabul Olympics (2020), which was a Guardian Poetry Book of the Month in June 2020 and a TLS and Irish Times 2020 Book of the Year. He grew up in Listowel, Co. Kerry, and is Professor of Poetry at the University of Manchester's Centre for New Writing.

Michael Schmidt is a publisher (Carcanet), literary historian and poet.
