The SHOp

A presentation of the latest issue of THE SHOp with a talk about its history and readings from some contributors. THE SHOp seeks to put good Irish poetry before its foreign readers, good foreign poetry before its Irish readers. The title of the magazine is a reference to the last line of W.B. Yeats’ poem ‘The Circus Animals’ Desertion.’ He says, in effect, that true poetry must begin ‘in the foul rag-and-bone shop of the heart.’
