Michael Feeney Callan’s love of poetry begun at an early age, whilst he turned thinking about the secret of its impact on him. As a toddler he used to be captivated via the lulling magic of Robert Louis Stevenson’s A Child’s backyard of Verses, and later the symbolism and mysticism of Yeats and Poe grew to become key affects. “To me poetry is the final word workman’s tool,” he says, “full of strength and flexibility.” one of the Modernists he favours confessional and language poets corresponding to John Berryman and Wallace Stevens. “But I’m proud to have an antiquarian bent. Poetry is the main effective distillation of the background of human idea, so it’s continually beneficial to excavate. The Epic of Gilgamesh, Homer and haiku are as suitable at the present time as rap. It’s a visceral, residing, doing thing.”
