In Arena Night -- Michael Mc Aloran (Black Editions Press)

''Reading in arena night is like deciphering the code to a new reality. Traditional approaches to form, syntax and linguistics don’t apply any more. For Michael McAloran the perceived world is reduced to ‘no nothing in this yet I’; the question of existence, and of the arbitrary connection between language and things, is central to a work that is both a poem of rare beauty and a major philosophical treatise. One senses the approving spirits of Beckett, Bacon and Celan urging McAloran to ‘go on’, to draw us into a dimension through language and ideas that will tease and excite in the silence that haunts long after the book has been left down.'' 
Dr Arthur Broomfield, poet and Beckett scholar.
