News at Eleven: Love's Bonfire is Tom Paulin's first

collection since 2004's The Road to Inver, which assembled his translations. The arrival of the new book explains the sense that something has been missing in the meantime--Paulin's restless and idiosyncratic worrying at the points of friction between poetry, politics and history. As "A Noticed Thing" comments, while time has elapsed and there has been a peace settlement in Northern Ireland, "the world though is not conclusion".
