Belfast Confetti, Ciaran Carson s third book of poetry, weaves together in a carefully sequenced volume prose pieces, long poems, lyrics, and haiku. His subjects include the permeable boundaries of Belfast neighborhoods, of memory, of public and private fear, and, indeed, of the forms of language and art. Carson finds unexpected usesconstructive and destructiveof the building rubble of Belfast history. Rich in lore of place, these innovative and vividly fresh poems draw deeply on traditionsoral, local, and literary."
