Essays on Ireland, Volume II, Irish Willow by Chris Arthur

Irish Willow is the second Chris Arthur essay collection published by PenMark Press (an imprint of The Davies Group, Publishers). It continues his thoughtful and lyrical meditations on the world we live in, the actions we take, and the consequences of our existence. Arthur is first and foremost a poet; a poet who has chosen to write in the prose form of the essay. His ability to look deeply, feel intensely, and write compellingly can move the reader to a deeper appreciation of life. As with Arthur's first collection, Irish Nocturnes, each essay is illustrated.

“Arthur meditatively stakes out his own personal space, and reclaims the landscape for the Protestant sensibility, describing a terrain that is at times as immanent with a sense of the numinous and sacred as any Heaney landscape…[it] is an engaging and inspiring read…filled with existential reflections which not only deal with reminiscences of growing up, with relationships, and rites of passage, but with all the complexities of life, with unexpected encounters — not least with language…Inspiringly, Irish Willow manages to catch quite a bit of the ‘uncatchable mystery of being’.” —Irene Gilsenan Nordin, Nordic Irish Studies
