Reviews of Spenser

'Spenser is a poem to be read through from start to finish and then revisited at leisure. Lysaght's lyricism and poetic strength add potency to the strong narrative quality of the text making for a deeply satisfying and stimulating read.'


Des Kenny Galway Advertiser




'Se├ín Lysaght’s Spenser is an elegant and arresting publication, a poem-length biography of the poet Edmund Spenser, coloniser, courtier and romantic. It is beautifully printed on expensive paper, with poem titles in red ink, and beautifully designed endpapers. As a book it is a work of art.'
