A Kingdom of Love was published in 2019 by Carcanet and Ned Denny’s Unearthly Toys: Poems and Masks won the Seamus Heaney Centre Poetry Prize in 2019. Ned’s collection has been described by Prof. Nick Laird as ‘deeply felt, earnest, and concerned with the large questions of being alive, of loving, of trying to exist in a secular world separated from nature.’
