Ciaran Carson was born in Belfast into an Irish-speaking family. Carson's first book was The New Estate (1976).
Ciaran Carson was born in Belfast into an Irish-speaking family. His father, William, was a postman and his mother, Mary, worked in the linen mills. He spent his early years in the lower Falls Road where he attended Slate Street School and then St. Gall's Primary School, both of which subsequently closed. In the ten years before The Irish for No (1987) he perfected a new style which effected a unique fusion of traditional story telling with postmodernist devices. The first poem in The Irish for No, the tour-de-force 'Dresden' parades his new technique. Free ranging allusion is the key.

Forget the corncrake's elegy A shiver now runs through the laurel hedge, And washing flutters like the swaying lines Of a new verse.
Forget the corncrake's elegy. Rusty Iambics that escaped your discipline Of shorn lawns, it is sustained by nature. It does not grieve for you, nor for itself. You remember the rolled gold of cornfields, Their rustling of tinsel in the wind, A whole field quivering like blown silk? A shiver now runs through the laurel hedge, And washing flutters like the swaying lines Of a new verse. The high fidelity Music of the newly-wed obscures your Dedication to a life of loving Money.
