Eamon Grennan is from Dublin, Ireland, and has lived in the United States for many years.
The poems in Eamon Grennan's The Quick of It — each one without title and compacted into ten taut lines — are rendered with exquisite detail and reverence for the everyday elements of weather, landscape, family, art, questions.
Grennan's poems are persistent, amplified acts of attention, proving with every detail — light glancing off stone, an orange stem framing a Chardin still life, the contours of the body trapping the mind — that we are our best selves when we are most alert.

 Book Review by Chris Lott
Grennan is at his best writing poems which work their way from small objects outward, beginning with a salt-shaker, a statue or a trapped firefly.
Too often, Grennan befriends abstraction, and the rescuing power of his undeniable linguistic skill is only enough to bring the poems into the realm of the less than lively kind of work I spoke of earlier.
Grennan writes of his now-dead mother in a manner that is sadly dead itself, and then proceeds to outdo himself with a crude nature-link at the end of the same poem:

 IrishAbroad Book Reviews
No one could ever accuse Dublin-born poet Eamon Grennan of being conventional, and his latest collection The Quick of It shows why.
Grennan, who divides his time between the west of Ireland and upstate New York, has produced an offbeat collection of untitled poems, all exactly ten lines in length.
Images of nature and the human body dominate, but, as usual, Grennan – whose poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The New Republic and The Irish Times – keeps the reader on his or her toes with all sorts of startling visions.

 The Loft Literary Center: Image and Innovation
he same natural terrain is trod with occasional eloquence, though less skill, by Eamon Grennan, whose The Quick of It is the seventh volume by this highly esteemed poet and essayist.
In these untitled poems, each of which is ten lines long, Grennan meditates on the natural landscape, at times invoking, with his often complex and beautiful lyrical pyrotechnics, the work of Gerard Manley Hopkins, more often suggesting, through his subject matter and meditative pose, the poems of Robert Frost.
Grennan is at his best when he resists the urge to summarize his awe of the natural world and instead applies his considerable talents to the suggestion of it, as in an unsettling poem about deer hunting.

Grennan's observations of the natural world are inextricably bound to the ineluctable experiences of death and loss, resulting in a poetry that gnaws its way toward basic realizations about what it means to be a human animal.

Their occasions are often ordinary enough--a walk with a daughter, watching three boys swim, meditating on a fire--but their language and energy are far from ordinary.
Of the various ways to be original, Grennan?s is one of the more difficult; he devotes himself to patient, gracious exploration of the everyday.
The early poems are rich and resonant in their praise of even the most homely gestures: "Amazing, how the young man who empties/ our dustbin ascends the truck as it moves/ away from him, rises up like an angel.

 Still Life With Waterfall   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Born in Dublin in 1941, Grennan was apparently educated in a monastery, a time on which he doesn't care to elaborate, projecting it instead as a twilight image right out of Irish magical tales.
It is a strategy that, if only obliquely, earns him a place in the current ecological agon of species extinction, exhibiting the Irish disposition to always keep one eye on politics, the other on a poem.
Schooled also in the history of painting, Grennan brushes his words across a page like oil pigments that never thoroughly dry.
