Dun talks about McCool, the text and the beautiful way in which it has been presented by Goldmark.
‘It seemed until recently that the long poem in English was not possible any more; then there suddenly appeared a series of celebrated poetic narratives and sequences. Aidan Andrew Dun reinforces this development with McCool: a sequence of enormous power that welds together myths and stories in a form that speaks to our times. It is an energetic and compelling magnum opus, striking out in new directions.’
Bernard O'Donoghue, Poet & Fellow of Wadham College, Oxford
Again, Dun has told an epic tale in verse that is more than verse. Fusing elements of Gilgamesh, the Fenian cycle and Eugene Onegin, McCool is strikingly modern. 21st century art, war and love are explored in a 'white goddess' poem with London and Heliopolis as mystic backdrops. This is Byronic cinema.
