Mike Absalom, an Irish poet, painter and printmaker, was born in Devon in 1940.
His mother was Irish. His father was Welsh. Educated in Quebec, Sweden,
Iran and England, he majored in Oriental Studies (Arabic and Farsi) at Oxford
and Gothenburg Universities before embarking on a career as a singer/songwriter
during the 1960s and 70s.
From 1980 to 2000 he lectured on satire, using his own verse as a template
and worked as a harpist, fiddler, children's entertainer and puppeteer across
Canada and in the USA and South America. He returned to Ireland in 2002 to paint
and write poetry. He has recently read and lectured on his own poetry at the
English and also the Celtic Studies Department of AMU University, Poznan, Poland.
He lives and has his studio in Kilkelly, County Mayo.
In September 2012 his book "Even the Grass Has a Hangover" was shortlisted
for the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Prize.
