For Tarry Flynn, young farmer, poet, son and lover, the responsibility of family, farm and poetic inspiration and his own unyielding lust is a heavy one and he realizes he must rise above it all, or make his escape over the nearest horizon.
He did not ask things to have a meaning or to tell a story. To be was the only story
A semi-autobiographical novel from the author of The Green Fool and The Great Hunger
A man’s mother can be a terrible burden sometimes. For Tarry Flynn – poet, farmer and lover-from-afar of beautiful young virgins – the responsibility of family, farm, poetic inspiration and his own unyielding lust is a heavy one. The only solution is to rise above all – or escape over the nearest horizon.
Patrick Kavanagh’s Tarry Flynn is an idyllic and beautifully evocative account of life as it was lived in Ireland in the 1930s.
