Foreword by Seamus Heaney. “Dear Life” is Dennis O’Driscoll’s ninth book of poetry. Like his earlier work, it engages with contemporary issues – the internet era, the compensation culture, global warming – as well as providing fresh perspectives on the timeless topics of working and ageing, loving and dying, God and Mammon. Several startling poems give voice to twenty-first century Western attitudes towards religious belief. With its wry, double-edged title, the sequence “Dear Life” attempts nothing less than an exploration of the nature and purpose of human life.
