(In The Kick, poet Richard Murphy has constructed, from astonishingly detailed diaries kept over the course of five decades, a unique memoir of his life and times. The book is a publishing event. Murphy writes about the most painfully delicate personal issues, including his own ambivalent sexuality, and he also has brilliant accounts of meetings and friendships with some of the most significant post-war writers - WH Auden, Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath, JR Ackerley, Laura Riding, Robert Graves, John McGahern and Conor Cruise O'Brien among them. He writes well about landscape and buildings, about his obsession with the coastline of the West of Ireland, and with affectionate lack of sentiment about the Protestant gentry from which he comes. The literary milleu in London, Dublin and New York are described with serenely devastating honesty. Here too are disturbing memories of discrimination against Irish Travellers, and of extreme violence in Sri Lanka. The Kick is the record of a lifetime's engagement with the fracturing tensions of personal life and with the more obviously violent legacies of Anglo-Irish history. It demonstrates the qualities that Ted Hughes recognised in Murphy's verse: 'It combines a high music with simplicity, force and directness in dealing with the world of action)

[EAN: 9781862074576], Gebraucht, wie neu, [PU: Granta, New York, NY, U.S.A.], IRELAND INTELLECTUAL LIFE POETS BIOGRAPHY AUTOBIOGRAPHY LITERARY HISTORY, Biography & Autobiography|General, History|Europe|Great Britain|General, Biography & Autobiography|Literary, Presentation copy signed by the author. Good, clean copy - as new. In 'The kick', the Irish poet Richard Murphy, drawing on five decades of private notebooks, has created a unique memoir of his life and times. Written with the personality of a diary and full of self disparaging wit, his memoir takes us from a decayed Protestant 'Big House' in the west of Ireland to the colonial island of Ceylon, where, in the 1930's, the author's father was the last British Mayor of Colombo. 'The Kick' evokes people and desolate places on the west coast nad islands of Ireland. With critical irony, enduring affection, and often with sadness, Murphy descirbes his experience at boarding school and at Oxford, where he studied under C.S. Lewis. Here too are distrubing memories of dicrimination against Irish 'tinkers' and of mass murder in Sri Lanka, where he returned fifty years after leaving the island as a child. In memorable prose, 'The Kick' records a strangely eventful life.
