    Greg Delanty: emigrant laureate

    By admin | December 2, 2006

    Colum McCann, the Dublin-born, New York-based writer, appears in the weekend section of the Irish Times today praising the work of poet Greg Delanty. Greg Delanty, born in Cork and living in Vermont, is one of Ireland’s best-known emigrant poets. This year he published “Collected Poetry, 1986 – 2006”. Born in 1958, Delanty has lived in the US for twenty years.

    Colum McCann says,

    I was delighted to see Greg Delanty’s ‘Collected Poems’. Delanty has cataloged an entire generation and its relationship to exile. He is the laureate of those of us who have gone.
