Skelligs Calling Michael Kirby

This second volume of memoir extends and completes the cycle begun with Skelligside (1990), recording the life of a remarkable nonagenarian fisherman-poet and painter from the south Iveragh Peninsula in Kerry. Part One deals with fish, fishing and the life of the fisherman. Part Two describes the marine habitat, the kelp, rock pools beaches and strands of the Skelligs. Part Three gives a detailed account of the bird life, species by species, from the gannet, cormorant and puffin, to the fulmar petrel, loon and kittiwake; evoking their lore and taxonomy, in Irish and English. Part Four concludes with life on shore, the coastguards, shipwrecks, beachcombers and history of the Ballinskelligs Cable Station.

Skelligs Calling Bewertungen

"Kirby revels, like few authors do today, in the sheer wonder of Creation. Poet, painter, storyteller, folklorist and fisherman emerge and merge in this glowing book, speaking of his awe as he turns a trained eye to an environment he has lived in and loved for almost a century." - Gabriel Rosenstock "What a pleasure to read this wonderful collection of memories and reflections, fact, folklore and natural history... Michael Kirby, Irish speaker and prodigious reader, is a man who understands the true value of life. He shows us in this marvellous book that everything that lives is connected... his is the view of the wise man... we have much to learn from him." - from the Foreword by Jane Urquhart, prizewinning author of Awake and The Underpainter
