About Selected Delanty:
Greg Delanty’s words evoke his transatlantic experiences living in the U.S. and in Ireland and speak with vitality of the simultaneous going and comings of life. Often described as a poet who is re-making language, Delanty’s vast collections of poems and wide regard establish him as one of the leading poets writing today.



“Delanty has catalogued an entire generation and its relationship to exile. He is the laureate of those who have gone.”Colum McCann

“A true poet”The Guardian
