Seán Dunne (1956-1995)
Seán Dunne’s poetry retains the ‘meaning’ of gesture as he dramatizes the way people live their lives and lays it before his reader without the self regard we have come to expect of much contemporary poetry.
There can be little doubt that, had he lived, Seán Dunne would have written with the authority of real and lasting artistic achievement behind him . . .
