The Fall

The FallThe Fall by Anthony Cronin

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A bit like Bukowski these poems use short lines and simple, down to earth language. And like Bukowski there are a lot of bad poems hiding the brilliant ones. Unlike Bukowski these are mostly religious and meditative poems. I had not come across Cronin's work before but am glad I have - there are some real gems in here and I am looking forward to exploring his back catalogue.
