Translating the beauty and splendor of his native Conamara into a language exquisitely attuned to the wonder of the everyday, John O'Donohue takes us on a moving journey through real and imagined worlds. Divided into three parts -- Approachings, Encounters, and Distances -- Conamara Blues at once reawakens a sense of intimacy with the natural world and a feeling of wonder at the mystery of our relationship to this world. Whether exploring the silent, eternal memory of Conamara or focusing on the power of language and the vagaries of human need and passion, O'Donohue tenderly reveals the fragile vulnerability of love and friendship. The result is a musical, transcendent, and deeply moving series of poems that exemplifies O'Donohue at his finest. Written with penetrating insight and distilled transparence, Conamara Blues offers a singular and lasting imaginative vision of a landscape of hope and possibility -- powerfully exhibiting the mastery of a poet at the height of his lyric powers.… (mais)

    Booking Passage: We Irish and Americans por Thomas Lynch (Caco_Velho)
    Caco_Velho: While Booking Passage is prose, Lynch is covering much of the same ground - sometimes literally, that John O´Donohue attempts in this book of poems.

"Parents know not what they do
When they coax those first words
Out of you, start a trickle
Of saying that will not cease."
- from "First Words"
A beautiful collection of inspiring poetry that speaks to the heart. The poet's use of words and imagery is creative and demonstrative. ( )

Lyrical and pastoral, these poems move by with a sort of languid beauty and blend into a long meditation with some gorgeous images. It's a quiet book, filled with glimpses of Ireland, mysticism, and transcendental visions, but well worth wandering through for the interested reader.

John O’Donohue’s second book of 82 poems follows the same format as his first, ‘Echoes of Memory’, this one having three sections, each introduced by poetic or philosophic thoughts authored by others.

Approachings and Distances artistically explore a variety of elemental life themes, while Encounters focuses on the full spectrum of Christ’s life from annunciation to coronation. A beautifully expressed journey for the spirit, there is much here for contemplative reflection.

‘The Nativity’ was one of many that spoke deeply to me as it exquisitely captures the life-giving intimacy of pregnancy and birth. And, of course, ‘Fluent’
“I would love to live
Like a river flows,
Carried by the surprise
Of its own unfolding.”

I Would recommend this one for poetry fans to experience the beauty of John's use of language.. ( )
