Michael Smith lives in Dublin, where he was born in 1942. He founded New Writers' Press in 1967, which published a number of neglected Irish poets, as well as several important younger writers. He was also co-founder and editor of the literary magazine The Lace Curtain. His own collections are With the Woodnymphs (Dublin, New Writers' Press, 1968); Times & Locations (Dublin, The Dolmen Press; Oxford, Oxford University Press, 1972); Familiar Anecdotes (New Writers' Press, 1981); Selected Poems (Cork, The Melmoth Press, 1985); Lost Genealogies (New Writers' Press, 1993); Meditations on Metaphors (New Writers' Press, 1998). An expanded and updated Selected Poems, entitled The Purpose of the Gift was published by Shearsman Books in October 2004, together with a volume of selected translations from the Anglo-Saxon, Irish and Spanish, entitled Maldon & Other Translations. His Collected Poems appeared from Shearsman in 2009. He has also translated the poetry of Cesar Vallejo, Elsa Cross, Veronica Volkow, Juan Antonio Villacanas and Claudio Rodriguez for Shearsman Books.
