Secret Lives

From the craftiness of Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth to the architects of the British Empire and such gifted orators like Pitt and Churchill, English leaders emerge as incorruptible patriots with unerring policies and a love of their citizens not matched in the history books. Despite its inaccuracy, this image is the one with which American presidents from John Fitzgerald Kennedy to Bill Clinton have tried to associate themselves in the course of their relations with England Trick of the Ga Bolga. By 1851 this figure had been reduced to 6.5 million. These statistics give some indication of the scale of the disaster, but since many of those affected by the famine lived in remote and inaccessible places, it is more than possible that far more people died that has ever been thought. It has been estimated that at least one million people died from starvation and its attendant diseases, with the balance seeking emigration to Britain and North America It is a tradition which in this century has not been ashamed to borrow from overseas models (such as Rudaki, Horace, Whitman or Apollinaire), and which runs counter to the mainstreams of British verse. From a photograph in the Basil Bunting Poetry Archive, Durham University. Pointing to one thread of that tradition, Basil Bunting used to say of the thirty years 1920-1950 that they were "the American years," and would talk of the great American poets, Niedecker, Pound, William Carlos Williams, and Zukofsky, limiting his esteem for Eliot, and only excepting from what he called the doldrums of English poetry in those decades the work of David Jones, Hugh MacDiarmid, and (with some diffidence) himself Joanna.

The 1908, 1948 and 2012 Summer Olympics were held in London, making it the first city to host the games three times Ringarra. Powerful war poems, such as Owen’s ‘Dulce’ or Hardy’s ‘I looked Up from My Writing’ often ask the most difficult ethical questions. As we approach the centennial commemoration of the war with ceremony, and young men and women continue to get killed in action, these poems bring us no immediate hope or assurance or comfort, but in their combination of pity, anger, moral complexity and linguistic pleasure, remind us as readers what it is to be idealistic, thoughtful, mortal, guilty – and make us question what it is to be human Gucci Gucci Coo.
