“Anatoly’s work as poet, haikuist, translator and anthologist has greatly enriched Irish poetry.”
“His prose poems have captured a certain playful delirium.”
“His work is possessed of that high level of imagination I look for in all creative writing.”
“He is a poet who voices the unspeakable.”
Pseudoaluminum and the Big Plans
The bigger the house, the smaller the occupants. The same goes for the devil: in huts, he used to oust the inhabitants, while in skyscrapers he can humble himself into a snuff-box.
The devil gradually loses prestige. His dung, however, still ornaments the fields. They send students to investigate this red clay. They hope it contains plenty of pseudoaluminum, the raw material of super-high-speed bombers and portrait frames.
