Durcan and Kennelly

The Oxford Handbook of Modern Irish Poetry appears now in the OUP catalogue. I've got an essay in it - there are 40 contributors! - which assesses Paul Durcan and Brendan Kennelly. Both of these poets have been very popular, of course, and they have had some academic attention. In his time Kennelly has probably been over-rated, but I'm not sure Durcan has been fairly treated (at least by academia.)
