'He'll to the Moors', Michael Hartnett. Irish University Review: a journal of Irish Studies read online review & book description:

In 1994, five years before his death, Michael Hartnett published his Selected and New Poems. This volume concluded with five long and longer poems: 'Mountains, Fall on Us', 'The Old Catechism', 'The Mari who Wrote Yeats, The Man who Wrote Mozart', 'Sibelius in Silence', and, finally, 'He'll to the Moors'. (1) The last-named text is a poem of 223 lines divided into twelve sections which, while ostensibly depicting the life of the Catalan medieval poet, theologian, and polymath, Ramon Lull, is in fact an autobiographical poem depicting Michael Hartnett's own life composed, as he states in the poem, 'in my old age' (at the time of composition he was fifty-three years old).
