The Memory Tree: Poems 2009-2015 is Sean Haldane's first collection since the publication of his collected poems, Always Two (2009). As in all his work, the poems of The Memory Tree display an impressive intellectual and aesthetic clarity, married to a refreshing candour about the joys and pains of love and desire. Haldane brings to his work an authoritative, confident voice but one capable of a reflective questioning, a playful sense of irony and an unashamed belief in the redemptive power of lyric poetry as he explores the theme and counter-theme of the past and present.


About the author:

Sean Haldane was born in Sussex in 1943. Educated at University College, Oxford and Saybrook Institute, San Francisco, he grew up mainly in Northern Ireland and lived for many years in Canada. Having resolved early in his literary career never to make a living from poetry or to teach it, he has worked as a lecturer, part-time farmeer, small press publisher, psychotherapist, and a consultant clinical neuropsychologist. He lives in London and is currently the driving force behind Run Press based in Cork, Ireland. His most recent publications are a historical detective novel, The Devil's Making, which won the Canadian Best Crime Novel Award for 2014, and a philosophical study Time/No Time: The Paradox of Poetry and Physics (2013).

Review of Always Two: Collected Poems 1966-2009

... an extraordinary experience, not unlike walking very close to a waterfall. Things sparkle and flash on all sides: one becomes mesmerised and fascinated by the energy, the force of the flow ... It is eerie and intense.

Helena Nelson


Review of Always Two: Collected Poems 1966-2009

If Haldane is not a "love poet" in any limiting sense, one quality he does share with such poets through the ages is a ravishing lyrical power.

David Cameron
