Gethsemane Day Summary


Gethsemane Day by Dorothy Molloy

"Hare Soup", Dorothy Molloy's first collection of poems, was published by Faber in 2004, just weeks after her sudden and untimely death. Among her papers a group of further unpublished poems was discovered, which continue the concerns of Hare Soup, but include a group of poems written about her last illness. "Gethsemane Day" brings together a selection of Dorothy Molloy's posthumous poetry, all of which was composed within a concentrated span of time. It displays all the satirical verve and lyric drive of "Hare Soup" (beginning with a poem on Barbie dolls), but modulates into a final section of lyrics which confront her illness and imminent death with harrowing lucidity.

Gethsemane Day Reviews


"'The essence of Molloy's gift [is] to bring the ordinary modern voice into conjunction with the big issues. Her lines have plenty of resonance... This is one of the reasons why she is so good'. Giles Foden"
