Poetry and audience

 

Sir, – How refreshing to see a letter about poetry (Irish Times 21st MayMay 21st) in the middle of the bombardment of letters about the referendum and those about the gratuitous vulgarity of Shane Ross.

Whether you agree with Bill Power’s views or not (and I happen to agree), it’s good to get a break from the other topics, and particularly on something as civilised as poetry. – Yours, etc,
