    Come on, don't tell me you've never been struck by the simple personal tragedy of Heaney's "Mid-Term Break", or the lustful admiration in Clarke's "The Planter's Daughter", or the exasperated nerdery behind Kavanagh's "Iniskeen Road", or the tumultuous political commentary of Yeat's "September 1913"?

    No?

    No?
