Winner of both the T. S. Eliot and Forward prizes, The Drowned Book is an extraordinary collection, a classic from one of the leading poets of our time.

The Drowned Book is a work of memory, commemoration and loss, dominated by elegies for those the author has loved and admired. Sean O’Brien’s exquisite collection is powerfully affecting, sad and often deeply funny; but it is also a dramatically compelling book – disquieting, even – and full of warnings.

Synopsis: As the book unfolds, O’Brien’s verse occupies an increasingly dark, subterranean territory – where the waters are rising, threatening to overwhelm and ruin the world above.
