By Paul Jeffcutt

Poetry - Paperback



The poems collected here were stimulated by real-life stories encountered in a variety of media. They are not ‘found poems’. The real-life story has instead provided a launch point for the poem. Ciaran Carson christened them ‘discovered poems’. This collection brings together Paul's discovered poems and is dedicated to the late Ciaran Carson, founding Director of the Seamus Heaney Centre in Belfast.

Paul Jeffcutt has won thirty three awards for poetry in competitions in Ireland, the UK and the USA. He has two previous collections: The Skylark’s Call, Dempsey & Windle (2020) and Latch, Lagan Press (2010). He is widely published in literary journals and anthologies.

Paul Jeffcutt proves himself to be a poet at ease with subjects that so many make a mess of. All the human condition, in its glorious difficulty, is here: the erotic, history, cancer, politics, and spirituality. But the making of these poems is his unshowy expertise with language. It is only a matter of time before he acquires the readership that poetry such as this ultimately insists on. - Kevin Higgins

Paul Jeffcutt’s poems represent a serious reckoning with the horrors and beauties of life, death and our shared common world. Stark, simple – but never less than complex.
- Ian Sansom
