Waveforms: Bull Island Haiku by Pat Boran


SKU: 9780993172601 Category:
Pat Boran’s haiku sequence (or rensaku) celebrates the 200-year old island in Dublin Bay.
[A]n exquisitely designed pocket-sized book … Pat Boran has rendered the small and not so small world of Bull island with precision, thoughtfulness and sheer easy artistry.  Employing the ‘venerable form’ of the haiku, he has enlivened it and captured the island. Just as the island appeared out of the blue two hundred years ago, it embodies, with its ecosystem and day-trippers, a certain fragility and transience applicable to all of us.
