Opening the Intimate Room of Poetry to Everyone

In a first among Irish publishers, The Dedalus Press is pleased to announce the availability in our Audio Room of a 15-min excerpt from Padraig J Daly's recent reading to launch his new collection of poems, Clinging to the Myth (Dedalus, 2007).

The mp3 file (7 MB) may be listened to with most regular web browsers, or freely downloaded to the computer or audio player of your choice.

This first in a series of online book-launch recordings is both part of the growing archive of new writing from Dedalus and an attempt to open the intimate room of poetry to everyone.

Gabriel Rosenstock 3-book launch

The launch of 3 new titles (among them Bliain an Bhandé / Year of the Goddess) by Gabriel Rosenstock on 01 February (Lá Fhéile Bríde) at the Unitarian Church, St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2, was a lovely, good-humoured affair, given an extra spiritual lift by the wonderful singing of Pádraigín Ní Uallacháin and, afterwards, by the concertina playing of Mary Begley. The Indian Ambassador to Ireland, and his wife, were among those present, yet again highlighting the international dimension of Rosenstock's work.

The other two books are published by Coiscéim: further details at
