Given a choice of worlds, here or beyond, I'd pick this one not once but many times . . .' — from Homage to Goa' The publication of a new book of poems by Derek Mahon is a momentous occasion. Life on Earth collects, and adds to, work which has appeared recently in limited editions. It opens with celebrations of notable exemplars: Coleridge, Chekhov, the novelist Brian Moore. This echo poetry extends to Art Notes' on Hopper, de Staël and others, followed by the eco-poetry of the Homage to Gaia' sequence on environmental themes. A substantial and positive volume distinguished by its light touch, Life on Earth is the work of a supreme artist. Clear, unerring, reverberating: a genuine original.' — W S Merwin
