Well, the poems were interesting for being so different as examples of  
'lyric' (or anti), but I actualy fund the exchange between you & Todd  
on Heaney much more fun.

As someone who both is able to admire some of Heaney's poems, & who  
feels that, as you say, 'Heaney’s current elevated position in poetry  
is unjustified within the context of the of 20th century poetic  
history', I found it an invigorating discussion.
