Eilean Ni Chuilleansin’s Collected Poems is a book of singular beauty and uncommon cohesion. It contains work from more than fifty years and nine collections and includes new, previously unpublished poems. For all the serenity of their surfaces a core of historical concern permeates her lines. Often she attends to marginalized or solitary figures and embraces multiple journeys which transport her readers to the dramas of hinted narratives. Eilean Ni Chuilleansin’s art is a wonder. As Maria Johnston wrote in Poetry Ireland Review, “One could spend one?s whole life reading  Ni Chuilleansin’s oceanic oeuvre and still feel that one has only sailed on the surface of this fugitive poet’s unending, elaborate, and endlessly transformative mysteries.”
