The Mason's Tongue

Adrian Rice

"The poems of The Mason's Tongue are brave children of an imagination rich with the tradition of radical dissent. Bright and plain-spoken, they must be seen and heard."  - Ian Duhig, poet

The Mason's Tongue was nominated for the Irish Times Prize for Poetry and was the only poetry book shortlisted for the Christopher Ewart-Biggs Memorial Literary Prize in 2002.
