here I am with the first post (actually the third if you’ve read the previous ones!)of our academic year. The author we dealt with in class William Wall who will be here in Pordenone at Pordenone Legge Friday 21st at 19.00 Loggia del Municipio. This is his website where there are some short stories and poems you can download for free.
As regards Ireland and the GHOST ESTATES here’s the video we watched in class.
The next link is to an article by the RTE Ireland Spectre of ghost estates haunts Ireland. Read in carefully and watch the video. It gives a perfect picture of the devastating consequences of property speculation and the blindness caused by the economic boom during the CELTIC TIGER. It perfectly suits the poem we read Ghost estate.
I really hope you’ve enjoyed his poems and will attend his readings. It’s all by now. Bye!
