Cosmocartography is the debut poetry collection from multi-awardwinning Irish poet Ciarán Hodgers. It investigates a wide range of personal experiences, challenges what it means to belong and documents the journeys we take to understand ourselves, the triumphs and trauma of the stories we carry in us. Ranging in scale from the quiet introversion of meditations on identity to the epic, cinematic movements of the universe, this poetry collection is a love letter to celebration, survival, love and resistance.

‘Cosmocartograpy is a visceral, cinematic journey through nostalgia, chaos
and stardust. It’s an education in movement and migration, through land,
age and space. A necessary and beautiful collection that left me floored.’
LISA LUXX

‘This is a clear-sighted, inquisitive and hopeful collection, one that takes
pleasure in language and finds consolation in the bonds it helps us forge,
with each other and with the universe.’
FRAN LOCK

‘Ciarán’s poems found me when I needed them. I felt I saw the world anew
because of his art. Most importantly I ask myself do I believe him? Has he
changed me? The answer is yes on both counts.
STEPHEN JAMES SMITH

‘A poetic pilgrimage that exists somewhere between a heavy night out, a
voyage into outer space and a traditional Irish folk song.’
