Conjure is Michael Donaghy's third collection, and his most accomplished to date, displaying the same trademark elegance, sleight of hand and philosophical wit that have established his reputation as a `poet's poet'.
But while these poems time their feints and punches as well as ever, often the poet's guard is deliberately kept down: Conjure's elegies and disappearing acts, love songs and tortuous journeys represent the most challenging, vulnerable and moving work Donaghy has yet written. `Among the finest American poets of his generation' Robert McPhillips `The artistry of Donaghy's work seems to me exemplary' Sean O'Brien `The fine-tuned precision of a twelve-speed bike' Alfred Corn
