Trevor Joyce • Green Arcade, SF, November 2
For almost fifty years, since publication of his first book in 1967, Trevor Joyce has been a unique voice in Irish writing. His early work explored some possibilities of the lyric, and began a lifelong engagement with translation. Successive books explore the possibilities of found text, computer-mediated composition, writing under constraint, and radical approaches to translation.
Joyce co-founded, in Dublin, the New Writers’ Press and its journal The Lace Curtain in the late sixties, and then the annual SoundEye Festival in Cork in the nineties. He was elected to Aosdána, the Irish affiliation of artists, in 2004, and has just been awarded the 2016 N.C. Kaser Poetry Prize. His latest book is Selected Poems 1967-2014, Shearwater Press.
