Matthew Sweeney

Born in Donegal in 1952, Matthew Sweeney is based in Cork currently, having previously been resident in Berlin, Timişoara and, for a long time, London. His latest poetry collections are Horse Music (2013), The Night Post (2010), and Black Moon (2007). Several books prior to that include Sanctuary (2004) and Selected Poems (2002). Bilingual collections of Sweeney’s work came out in Germany and Holland in 2008. Earlier translations appeared in Mexico, Romania, Latvia and Slovakia. Death Comes for the Poets, a collaborative novel written with John Hartley Williams, was published in 2013. Two pamphlets are appearing in 2014 – The Gomera Notebook (Shoestring) and Twentyone Men and a Ghost (The Poetry Business) – and Bloodaxe will publish a new collection, Inquisition Lane, in 2015.
