New METRE archive online
METRE was a magazine of poetry that ran for seventeen issues from 1995 to 2005. For most of that period it was edited by Justin Quinn and David Wheatley. It presented original poetry, reviews, interviews and essays. Published and printed in Ireland, edited by two Irish people, it nonetheless billed itself as 'A Magazine of International Poetry': the desire was present from the outset to provide a platform for the best of Irish work alongside the best from the UK, US, Australia as well as work in translation.
Many TCD students and staff, past and present, contributed to Metre over the years, including Philip Coleman, Andrew Goodspeed, Kit Fryatt, Stephen Matterson, Maria Johnston, Caitríona O'Reilly, Gerry Dawe and others.
This site presents a database of PDFs of original contributions to the magazine, and is hosted by the Faculty of Arts, Charles University Prague, under the auspices of the Centre for Irish Studies.
