Poetry is theft, Ctd with Ciaran Carson

Ciaran Carson wrote in the September 23 2013 edition of The Gown: 
"In 2009 I published a book of poems called On the Night Watch, poems written in a very spare, skinny form that went down the page in short lines. It wasn't until halfway through that I realised that I'd taken some of that form from the kind of poems Seamus had been writing in the 1980s."

He finished by saying:
"I think the generation of poets here that came after Seamus thought of him as a father of sorts."
