Michael Longley: The Vitality of Ordinary Things

Michael Longley: The Vitality of Ordinary Things | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
To reassert the liveliness of ordinary things, precisely in the face of what is hardest and most broken in life and society — this has been Michael Longley’s gift to Northern Ireland as one of its foremost living poets. He is a voice for all of us now, wise and winsome about the force of words in a society that has moved away from sectarianism in living memory. The Good Friday Agreement was signed 20 years ago this month, and social healing is ongoing work to this day.

April's Poem of the Month

April's Poem of the Month | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
April’s Poem of the Month comes from Waves and Trees by Justin Quinn Street On ne voit plus, on lit. — Gilles Deleuze A glance up from a book. All still except the swoop and turn of sparrows up, a flurry of wingbeats, small facets in a fury, in flight around this fissure that’s topped with stunning azure and open at both ends. They ignite a silver flourish two floors below — the sun for one short moment seen in a square of tilting glass. Between the buildings, panes and all the storied eyes, reflections and replies go rippling back and forth into the future, along the street’s thick tarmac spine — on either side they span out to the hazy suburbs. Verso. Recto. Two hands weigh up the press of sheet on coupled, fitting sheet; they flex and spread the text to catch a better light, their body rearranging things and itself, branching into another body until a further gaze (the claim and counterclaim, the months of waiting, the name) unfolds from out of these. from Waves and Trees (2006) by Justin Quinn
