Poet Brendan Galvin and the natural world

galvin poetry bookAward-winning poet Brendan Galvin, a Boston College alumnus, has published a book of poetry titled The Air’s Accomplices (LSU Press, 2015). The collection vividly evokes Galvin’s love for the rugged landscapes of Cape Cod and Ireland and their inhabitants. Weaving themes of death, migration and aging into an exploration of the natural world, Galvin’s work reflects a deep engagement with the places he and his family have called home, as well as with the triumphs and tragedies of human life. The latest issue of Boston College Magazine features one of the poems from The Air’s Accomplices, “This Morning’s Pep Talk at Egg Island.”
