CIARAN CARSON is one of the most accomplished among the astonishing number of formidable poets who have issued from Ulster over the last three generations. In his elegy on the death of Yeats, Auden mused that "mad Ireland stung him into poetry." Northern Ireland, where that madness has lingered longest, more recently has prodded artists like Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, Medbh McGuckian, Frank Ormsby and Carson into stunning poems and wonderfully readable translations.

"Peahead" Walker won its first seven games.

It isn't every day in college recruiting that a coach lands a future NBA lottery pick because a hurricane blew through the U.S. Virgin Islands. What's more, had this hurricane tormented some other helpless atoll, that coach's ticket to the Final Four might have been leading the break on the university swim team instead of finishing it with two-handed jams against Duke.
