    Bibliographical note

    Reference text: This essay examines Montague's description of his ideal poet (and himself) as a 'global regionalist', and considers the extent to which, in his own poetry, he has been able to reconcile a loving, Kavanaghesque commitment to the local and particular with an avowed ambition to modernise and internationalise Irish poetic tradition.
