Seán Mac Falls


Seán Mac Falls

Seán Mac Falls (born 18 November 1957) is an Irish poet.Belonging to no group or movement and operating outside of literary fashions, his brand of symbolist poetry can, at first reading, appear difficult. His use of allusion, startling diction and subtle punning display submerged metaphor in his work. The overall effect is a fresh implementation of Imagism.

He has published two books of poetry and several chapbooks. His first collection of poems, "20 Poems" (2001, ISBN 1929812051) was praised, first from Oxford University don, John Carey, who compared the poet to W. B. Yeats and later by Yale critic Harold Bloom. [John Carey, Sunday Times, London, March 16 2002] Several of the poems were Pushcart Prize nominations and were reprinted in major UK magazines such as "Agenda", The "London Magazine" and "Stand Magazine".

He published a second book, entitled "The Blue Falcon", in 2005.
