    1. It makes me sad that Ciaran Carson has such a bug up his ass about Seamus Heaney, since they are two phenomenal Irish poets who both write amazing poems. Why can't we all just get along, boys? Oh, that's right, because only one of them won the Nobel. And though I appreciate Carson's talent and economy, his poems are broody, masculine (compensating again?), and a little too lonely for my taste. They make me feel like he has no friends, and one might argue that a state of isolation is necessary fo [...]


    2. Features some really beautiful writing, including "Revised Version" which is one of the best lyrical essays I've ever read.


    3. This poem was very jumbling and confusing and that's what the Poet wanted to show I guessHe used a lot of literature techniques and left sentences hangingAnd it wasn't what was in the context it was what was behind it and what he really felt in this Belfast war thingI guess the confetti meant fire going out like fireworks, or dead bodies, or objects, or even confetti itselfBut overall I like how it was structed and was created in a way to show what was going on!



    4. Review to come after class discussions, at the minute we're sitting on 2 stars but could be pushed up to 3 if the poems are given more context.


    5. I loved this book of poetry. Carson's voice is gritty and urban but at the same time mature and intellectual. I don't know how he does it.
