Brendan Kennelly (b. 1936) is the prolific author of over twenty books of poetry as well as plays, novels and criticism. Born in Ballylongford in Co. Kerry, Kennelly was Professor of Modern Literature at Trinity College, Dublin for thirty years. In his native country Kennelly is public property, both popular and controversial, not least for his collections Cromwell and The Book of Judas both of which generated many column inches on publication. Like the 'Happy Grass' that accepts "every human cry" there is space in a Kennelly poem for the good, the bad, the ugly (and the beautiful). His vision defies any attempt to impose strict categories on the world.

Familiar Strangers is Brendan Kennelly's own selection from over 20 poetry books written over five decades. This landmark volume replaces his earlier selections A Time for Voices, Breathing Spaces and Begin. But Kennelly has revisited his life work, re-scoring familiar and estranged pieces into new gatherings which reflect his preoccupations more powerfully, bringing together poems from different times - and adding many new, previously lost or uncollected poems - so that they speak in chorus like the generations of people they celebrate.

This book gives a breathing space for a number of poems which didn't fit into the scope of Brendan Kennelly's Selected Poems, A Time for Voices (Bloodaxe, 1990). It contains the poem-sequences Love Cry (1972), Islandman (1977) and A Small Light (1979), as well as poems from Shelley in Dublin (1974), and the full version of A Girl (1981), consisting of 22 songs, several of which are previously unpublished.The four sequences have been unavailable for some time, and Brendan Kennelly is re-publishing them in response to popular demand. He has written new introductions for each as well as a provocative new essay to preface the whole of Breathing Spaces.In these poems, Kennelly opens up his imagination, making a space through his poetry for constrained voices to speak, live and breathe. Many of these poems anticipate Cromwell and The Book of Judas, in which he allowed those more reviled figures their own breathing spaces. Many have been re-written, he says, 'in the light or darkness of what I've come to believe about poetry and language.'
