In thirty-four sonnets Ciaran Carson animates the romantic agony of three of Europe’s great nineteenth-century poets with characteristic humour, argot and brilliant rhymes. Their formal patterns harness the forward rush of his thought and language. His ‘correspondences’ in The Alexandrine Plan show these poets’ relevance to late twentieth-century Ireland.
