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)

John will be launching we’ll be launching ‘Scenes of Moderate Violence’ on Wednesday, May 15 in the Pearse Centre, pearse Street, Dublin 2 at 6pm.
