Double Negative, 2019
Seventh poetry collection. Shortlisted for the 2020 Irish Times Poetry Now Award.
‘Groarke makes symbols… rooted in knowledge and love, which rear up like standing stones in clean lines meant to endure.’
– Declan Ryan, L.A. Review of Books (August 2020)
‘Masterfully articulates… complex truths’
– Poetry London (Autumn 2020)
‘Groarke’s fine lyricism and wit are present as never before, the humour more mordant, the vision darker; yet the poems are so exact and fine, it is an exhilarating read….A collection to exult in’
– Martina Evans, Irish Times, July 2019
