I had been meaning to work up a piece on Auden's poem on the death of W. B.
Yeats and interesting reactionary speech and a piece of pompous rhetoric
disguising a move to the right. I might get round to it yet.
then the news of Seamus Heaney's death came and I thought I would at lest
acknowledge that. I knew Heaney vaguely while at Uni. He then taught me
English in my post graduate year at the teacher's college. I last saw him
It would be worthwhile investigating his writing from a political point of
view. And again that is a project for another day.
For the moment I will simply record my sadness at the passing of a very
decent friendly man.
