Review of Kaite O’Reilly’s Persians

Kaite O’Reilly’s Persians – which won the Ted Hughes Award for New Poetry and is published on 29th July 2019 – has been reviewed in New Welsh Review:

“Kaite O’Reilly’s powerful, emotionally charged text…. a reflective meditation on war’s aftermath; a dramatic study of loss, grief and defeat…

A haunting tragedy.. 

Written and performed during ‘a time of terror’, O’Reilly has overlaid Aeschylus’ timeless tragedy with a distinctively contemporary howl of pain.”
