TIM CUNNINGHAM was born in Limerick in 1942, a place that ripples through these poems like the name through a stick of seaside rock


On Don Marcelino’s Daughter:


Don Marcelino’s Daughter contains pieces which are observantly compassionate, sympathetically sensitive and even portentous, where the reader continues to be assailed by the poem’s acidulated precipitation long after a first perusal.”


            Peter Reading, The Times Literary Supplement


“Tim Cunningham is at his best rewriting myths and parables . . . .  He’s also at his best when his quirky imagination takes off from the documentation of actuality. . . .   I liked these, often shorter, poems, and the book adds up to a good sense of the co-existence of past and present.”


            Herbert Lomas,  Ambit


“This is sensitive, assured writing.”


            Susan Burns,  The North



On  Unequal Thirds:


“There are some superb poems in Tim Cunningham’s Unequal Thirds – clear, well-crafted, self-contained and making a point.”


            Belinda Cooke,  Acumen


“. . .  The poet of good endings becomes a poet you can’t put down. 


“He writes tenderly about the human condition:  his consistently generous attitude to experience is not sentimental, just refreshingly positive.  Unequal Thirds has the wisdom of a grown-up poet – without any of the callow pretensions of youth, it has all of youth’s enthusiasm.”


            R.V. Bailey,  Envoi
