    Edward Halliday's last comments on poems and poets

    • POEM: The Courtship Of The Yonghy-Bonghy-Bo by Edward Lear (10/21/2009 8:27:00 PM)

      Although this is a 'nonsense' poem, and a humorous poem, it is also one of the saddest poems I have ever read. Edward Lear shows his true brilliance here by crafting an ostensibly nonsensical story which says a lot about human nature and relationships, particularly the way people value material goods over true affection, at least until they become aware of what they have lost.

    • POEM: Mesopotamia by Rudyard Kipling (10/21/2009 2:40:00 AM)

      Yes, this is an eerily predictive poem, especially since Mesopotamia in 1917 is Iraq today. Were the world leaders of World War I really as stupid as George W Bush and Tony Blair?
