He produces work which sings to you from the page his vision of loss and cultural decay, invasion and violence. McLoughlin has a unique talent for opening up metaphoric hinterlands in his poetry which deal with lasting themes in the manner of the modernist myth-maker giving a highly symbolist and symbolic account of the mythology and history of his society and opening it out into vigorous relation with our post nine-eleven era of nervousness and fear. His is a poetry of loss, endurance and adversity. He deals in the coinage of dark and lasting things.
