Mary Kennelly is a poet of love, of loss, of letting go, a lover of sweet anarchy who in a world where Christ lies bleeding can still choose redemptive laughter. In a world of the ordinary, the mundane, the poet finds that we are magnificent after all. Mary Kennelly is a fine poet whose poems are a joy to read.
