Michael Longley: The Ghost Orchid

Michael Longley: The Ghost Orchid

I zipped through this using a simple approach, mark the poems I want to mark and keep on reading quickly. I feel a bit of a poetry criminal for doing this, but am doing it anyway.


the mad poet p 6 - because of the made-up words, eg 'afflicted with the itchy nirls'

baucis and philemon p22 - because maybe reading about a happy couple will help

the scissors ceremony p27 - because I used to cut finger and toe nails kindly for years

the fishing party p42 - because I can't work out who is who yet

sun & moon p50 - because my brother used to call us Brother Sun and Sister Moon
