Eamon Grennan is an Irish poet born in Dublin. His first book, Wildly for Days, was published in 1983. He has lived in the United States, except for brief periods, since 1964. He was the Dexter M. Ferry, Jr. Professor of English at Vassar College until his retirement in 2004. Though his Irish roots are clear in his poetry, Grennan has an international sense of literary tradition. Gaelic poetry became an important influence, particularly, he has said, on the sound of his poems. At the same time, he is interested in the sentence as a poetic unit as well as a prose unit.
