Monkey No Aware #27— Seamus Heaney on Poetry

lacrimae rerum by Andrew Grimes Griffin“I don’t think poetry makes you a better person or anything like that.  Wordsworth had it right. It’s a pleasure. It’s a sophisticated pleasure. It’s a learned pleasure and I think you do have to develop a sense of it.”
Seamus Heaney in the documentary Out of the Marvellous
