I bet not one of you ignorant blackguards knows what a Yeat is

The title, before anyone takes offence, is my garbled recollection of what Joe's comment here helpfully reminds me is an episode from Spike Milligan's war memoirs.

Just to let you know that I'd dearly love to go and listen to Paul Muldoon (that's the Blogorrah link again) lecturing on Yeats at UCC this afternoon. Can't see I'm going to manage it though. Grrr.

If you're able and willing to go, here's the link (update: link now broken) to the UCC page.
