    Poetry in Ireland ended with Kavanagh. Poets ever since have clambered upon his back in the hope of being relevant. No one buys, let alone reads, poetry today, and if they do it’s just their friends and other poets, embarrassed into attending a launch to make up the numbers .

      Nonsense, you have obviously never read some of Kevin Higgins pieces here, as timeless as the tides….

      Just because you don’t read it doesn’t mean it’s not read
      Pat Iingoldsby is a good modern example. Paul Durcan, Evan Boland, Nuala ni Dhonaill, Paula Meehan, et all. There was some chap called .. Heaney I think it was also.

      …wasn’t it Kavanagh who claimed that the standing army of poets in Ireland never dropped below 10000…

    How much do you get for doing the “Professor of Poetry” gig? Also, are there any quantifiable deliverables?

      If you want to know, why don’t you look it up?

      “While in residence, the poet gives informal workshops or readings, spends time working with students and performing outreach work and makes one formal presentation a year, usually in the form of a lecture.”

        Nope. Belfast is very definitely in Ireland. It happens to be part of the UK politically. That can change and has before and will again. It will, however, remain in Ireland.

        He’s a globalist homogenist.

        Called for the dissolution of national sovereignÿ on his state visit to the Germany cityÿ of Lipseig. Abandoned his constitutional responsibilities to please his deep state overlords.

        He’s a waste of space. He should vacate the office.

        Pointless man. Terrible poet.
