Anything good in the Irish Times?

“I like rhyme, I like structures and I like rules. I love a good sonnet. I’m a hoor for a villanelle. Some of these things have fallen out of fashion in the poetry world, just as poetry has been falling out of fashion in the actual world….”

Poet John Moynes.

‘I’m a hoor for a villanelle. I like a good joke. Poetry criticism often doesn’t’ (Irish Times)
