This week I have a poet on poetry, Joe Hill’s centenary, the stories of migrants to Ireland, Irishmen in Workd War I, the curious language that is English and Prufrock: the comic.
Here’s why poetry matters by Anthony Wilson.
Ronan McGreevy writes on the often forgotten Irish volunteers who marched to certain death in World War I.
From Aoen Magazine, this is John McWhorter on why English is so weirdly different from other languages.
And here’s Julian Peters’ comic version of TS Eliot’s Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock.
