Poetry from the Deep Mind: A Poetry Reading and Presentation by John W. Sexton. A performative examination of the Aisling/Vision Poem from the perspective of a 21st century Irish poet.
John W. Sexton identifies with the Munster Aisling poetry tradition, and his poetry spans tangential surrealism, magic realism and experimental metaphoricism. His eighth poetry collection, The Nothingness Kit, was published by Beir Bua Press in 2022. A chapbook of his surrealist poetry, Inverted Night, came out from SurVision Books in 2019, and his Aisling collection and manifesto, Visions at Templeglantine, was published by the Revival Press in 2020. His next full collection, The World Under the World, is forthcoming from Salmon Poetry. His poem ‘The Green Owl’ was awarded the Listowel Poetry Prize 2007 for best single poem, and in that same year he was awarded a Patrick and Katherine Kavanagh Fellowship in Poetry.
