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.”
