Audrey Molloy

In this striking, moving, bold debut, Audrey Molloy’s poems move between Ireland and Australia, parenthood and daughterhood, and the sensual worlds of the body, its attendant desires and intensities. Beyond these essential forces, The Important Things, in all its formal elegance, is a book of grief too. Its second part stuns with tenderness. — Stephen Sexton, Poetry Prize Judge, 2022 Seamus Heaney Poetry Prize for a First collection for The Important Things
