Gwilym Williams's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Old King Cole by Edwin Arlington Robinson (1/7/2011 1:53:00 AM)

    I much prefer his poem Richard Cory. The one recorded by Simon and Garfunkel. I'm surprised there's only 1 Edward Arlington Robinson poem on here.

  • POEM: Invictus by William Ernest Henley (7/1/2010 2:37:00 PM)

    This poem 'Invictus' is the most visited poem on my blog

    Almost every day people come to PiR and read 'Invictus'. Yes, it has something.

  • POEM: The Landing Of The Pilgrim Fathers In New England by Felicia Dorothea Hemans (11/5/2009 2:21:00 AM)

    This 'vigorously grandiloquent'' poem is mentioned at the beginning of Bill Bryson's 'Made in America' but Bryson only quotes the first 2 verses. Apparently Hemans lived in North Wales and read about a founder's day celebration in Plymouth, Mass. on a piece of newspaper in which her groceries were wrapped. She was inspired to write her poem, which bears little relationship to the facts. A 'poet of limited talents' Bryson calls her. Her most famous line, which every schoolboy knows is: the boy stood on the burning deck.
