Irish poetry includes poetry in two languages, Irish and English. The complex interplay between these two traditions, and between both of them and other poetries in English and Scottish Gaelic , has produced a body of work that is both rich in variety and difficult to categorise. The earliest surviving poems in Irish date back to the 6th century, while the first known poems in English from Ireland date to the 14th century. Although there has always been some cross-fertilization between the two language traditions, an English-language poetry that had absorbed themes and models from Irish did not finally emerge until the 19th century. This culminated in the work of the poets of the Irish Literary Revival in the late 19th and early 20th century. Towards the last quarter of the 20th century, modern Irish poetry tended to a wide range of diversity, from the poets of the Northern school to writers influenced by the modernist tradition and those facing the new questions posed by an increasingly urban and cosmopolitan society.
When you are old and grey and full of sleep, And nodding by the fire, take down this book, And slowly read, and dream of the soft look Your eyes had once, and of their shadows deep;. How many loved your moments of glad grace, And loved your beauty with love false or true, But one man loved the pilgrim soul in you, And loved the sorrows of your changing face;. And bending down beside the glowing bars, Murmur, a little sadly, how Love fled And paced upon the mountains overhead And hid his face amid a crowd of stars.

The story of how Abraham, in obedience to a direct command from God, almost sacrificed his only son, Isaac , is one of the most perfectly written short narratives in the Old Testament. Owen, you'll notice, keeps close to the language of the King James Authorised Version. He also restrains himself rhythmically, conforming to the trudge of iambic pentameter. We like our war poetry, whether by Homer or Owen, to convey authenticity and guarantee its integrity by raw images and rough-hewn reportage. Owen can give us raw and rough-hewn, but in this poem he stands back from his subject matter: he is here to preach. And his matter is serious and specific enough to justify that technique. It's not until the imagery of "fire and iron" Abraham's implements were simply fire, wood and a knife that we see the parable to be constructed.
William Butler Yeats is widely considered to be one of the greatest poets of the 20th century. He belonged to the Protestant, Anglo-Irish minority that had controlled the economic, political, social, and cultural life of Ireland since at least the end of the 17th century Prose Home Harriet Blog.

What if I look upon a man As though on my beloved, And my blood be cold the while And my heart unmoved? Why should he think me cruel Or that he is betrayed? I'd have him love the thing that was Before the world was made. I long for truth, and yet I cannot stay from that My better self disowns, For a man's attention Brings such satisfaction To the craving in my bones. What can they do but shun me If empty night replies? I mocked, being crazy, but you mastered it And broke the chain and set my ankles free, Saint George or else a pagan Perseus; And now we stare astonished at the sea, And a miraculous strange bird shrieks at us. How could passion run so deep Had I never thought That the crime of being born Blackens all our lot?
