VAN MORRISON - Poetry: Selected By Irish Poet Paul Durcan (2010)
In WAVELENGTH magazine No. 1 there was an article by the leading Irish poet Paul Durcan called "The Drumshambo Hustler" which was first printed in the litery magazine MAGILL in May, 1988. The article attempts to put Van's poetry into a modern Irish context and he contends that Patrick Kavanagh and Van Morrison are the two finest poets in Ireland in his lifetime. A Quote by Van Morrison on lyrics, music, people, poetry, and words in lyrics music people poetry words.
"There's no difference between lyrics and poetry. Words are words. The only difference is the people who are in academic positions and call themselves poets and have an academic stance. They've got something to lose if they say it's all poetry; if there's not music to it, and you have to wear a certain kind of checkered shirt or something like that. It's all the same. Lyrics are lyrics, poetry is poetry, lyrics are poetry, and poetry is lyrics. They are interchangeable to me."
"You have to understand a bit about the poetry of the blues to know where the references are coming from. I write songs. Then, I record them. And, later, maybe I perform them on stage. That's what I do. That's my job. Simple." - Van Morrison
In 1974 Time magazine placed Van Morrison fifth in a curious little league table of ‘Greatest Living Songwriters’ behind Bob Dylan, John Lennon, Paul McCartney and Leonard Cohen.
