Eamon Grennan has said, “As far as I’m concerned, poetry is about elegy. Every poem is a memory of some kind, a celebratory elegy. Poems are like shells. Something is gone and that’s why you write.” His volumes of poetry include So It Goes, Still Life with Waterfall, and his latest, The Quick of It. He writes in both the ancient tradition of mournful remembrance in attention to the natural world and the modern impulse to seize and preserve the moment. Grennan returns to his native Ireland yearly for “voice transfusions” from his home in New York, where he teaches at Vassar College.
