Poems for September 16

I enjoyed the commentary about Heaney's poem "The Gutteral Muse" –Sept. 9 issue of New Yorker: p.55 (originally published by New Yorker, June 25, 1979

Of course, we do not do justice in a brief hour, discussing 5-6 poems—
and I agree with the commentary’s point that we are better for musing, re-reading, sleeping on poems, noting what we notice, hear, and the directions in which poems take us. I look forward to discussing. Martin will share
information about Architrave Press and Personal by Michael Bazzett.

From the Republic of Conscience by Seamus Heaney
To the Creature of the Creation – James Wright
