Tribute to Irish Poets

Conversation with
Frank Dullaghan

The Spring 2023 issue of Rattle features a Tribute to Irish Poets. From Yeats to Boland and Heaney, Ireland has a long tradition of producing great poets. We thought we’d take a look at what’s going on there now. The theme includes 17 poems by Irish poets and their always-interesting contributor notes, and a conversation with Frank Dullaghan, a poet who has lived an interesting live in both Ireland and abroad. The open section features 21 poets exploring their perspectives on life.
