plus de Beckett

Adding to the voluminous markings of Sam Beckett's centenary -- and wouldn't Beckett have liked being the only competition for the 1916 parade in the Irish news? -- poet Paul Muldoon offers a few lines in Sunday's New York Times. We were hoping for some of his clever placename wordplay (Armagh/Armani; Laois/Laos), but go read it anyway.
