  • D. H. Lawrence's "Afternoon in School: The Last Lesson" features a teacher, who dramatizes the uninspired performance of his lackluster students. The teacher has become weary from vain attempts to instruct them as they refuse to learn.

  • One of Emily Dickinson's many poems about death that takes the reader into the mind of someone dying or already dead yet able to communicate, somehow. Unusual syntax, short breathless phrasing, dashes galore and that suspension of reality Dickinson is so good at evoking. Ambiguous, rhyming, lyrical.

  • Heaney's Bogland focuses on Irish identity, history and the metaphorical - the peat bog as depository and preserver of the past, including the Giant Irish Elk and butter. With layered tension and textured language, Heaney takes the reader in and down into the quiet, dangerous heart of his country.

  • Browning's Meeting At Night is a short, compact mysterious love poem, a sensual mini-drama full of rhyme and rhythm reflecting the waves of the sea and the relationship between lovers. Contrasts are strong, imagery highly visual, the movement within sensual - autobiographical or dream fiction?

  • Donne's Death Be Not Proud is a Holy Sonnet written to denounce the power of Death. When we die we live eternally so defeating the idea of Death which is according to the speaker powerless, subject to fate, chance and kings. Death's put-down sonnet.
