The Poet and the City-Austin Clarke

The Poet and the City-Austin Clarke | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
Austin Clarke, who started his writing career during the Celtic twilight years and adapted some Irish language poetic forms and themes, has suffered from falling on the wrong side of the nationalist/modernist divide, a contrast partially built on critical essays by Beckett.

By week two I was heartily sick of reading that Shakespeare wrote King Lear while in quarantine. His quill must have been worn down to its last scrappy feather, as he supposedly also used the time to come up with both Macbeth and Antony and Cleopatra.

UPSTAIRS INCIDENT a poem by FRED JOHNSTON

A run-down of paranoia, touches of which we may be experiencing today. Is no one safe from being a 'witness' of some kind? And what is going on just out of sight? What should we perhaps know that we don't know?

Escaping Lockdown with WB Yeats

Escaping Lockdown with WB Yeats | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
From his Galway tower, amid the bitterness of civil war, Yeats looked out his window at an empty starling’s nest and imagined that bees might come to settle there. A timely image, for replacing bitter dissension with bee-like co-operation is surely the path to sweetness and light.

Colm Tóibín at 65: a writer at home here, there and everywhere - Independent.ie | The Irish Literary Times | Scoop.it
A story from Colm Tóibín's teenage years encapsulates his journey from Enniscorthy out into the wider artistic world, and also his sense of always returning to that small Co Wexford town, which he imaginatively explores in certain novels.
