Ben Dorain

Irish Pages Press 2021

£20.00

Garry Mackenzie identifies this wonderful tale as a modern long poem: which is quite a feat for a 'conversation with a mountain'  that pays homage to a 250-year old Gaelic praise poem to the same mountain.

Like its predecessor, Garry's poem follows a herd of deer through their year; and in so doing explores the mountain in breathtaking detail.
