The poems of Seán Rafferty, indifferent to fashion & almost if not completely unrecognised during his lifetime, have the distinction of being increasingly appreciated as among the most enduring written during the middle years of the twentieth century.
Gael Turnbull.

The 2 etruscan volumes of Rafferty are being repromoted, to mark the centenary of his birth, in Scotland in 1909. Seán Rafferty's poetry had long been admired by writers as diverse as Sorley MacLean, Harold Pinter, Hamish Henderson, Hugh MacDiarmid and Ted Hughes.

Whaur's Isadora Duncan dancin noo?
Whaur's Mary Garden aince was Melisande?
Damned if I know but is the old man fou
and has he still the thistle in his hand?
