  • Last night as I slept I dreamt I met with Behan I shook him by the hand and we passed the time of day When questioned on his views On the crux of life's philosophies He had but these few clear and simple words to say; I am going, I am going Any which way the wind may be blowing I am going, I am going Where streams of whiskey are flowing #peterotoole #brendanbehan #thepogues

  • “I respect kindness in human beings first of all, and kindness to animals. I don’t respect the law; I have a total irreverence for anything connected with society except that which makes the roads safer, the beer stronger, the food cheaper and the old men and old women warmer in the winter and happier in the summer.” - Irish writer Brendan Behan. #brendanbehan #irish #writing #irishwriters #kindness #kindnessproject

  • Imatge: Brendan Behan (“The Quare Fellow”) # “En realidad, ¿se puede enseñar a escribir a alguien? Brendan Behan (1923-1964), quien se autodefinió como “un bebedor que tiene problemas con la escritura”, recibió la invitación de una prestigiosa universidad estadounidense para dar una charla vespertina sobre su oficio. La fama de bebedor y agitador de Behan hizo que el auditorio se llenara hasta la bandera […] pero llegaba la hora y no había rastro del prohombre. […] Unos cuarenta minutos más tarde, un Behan más desaliñado que de costumbre irrumpió en la sala dando un traspié. […] . “Buenas tardes –canturreó-. A ver, que levanten la mano los que quieran ser escritores.”Casi todo el mundo la levantó. Behan contempló aquel bosque de brazos con desagrado. “Bueno –añadió-, entonces volved a casa y poneos a escribir de una puta vez”, y dicho lo cual, abandonó el escenario. . . [Cohen, Richard. 2018. “Como piensan los escritores”. (Pàg. 10-11) Blackie Books. Traducció Laura Ibáñez] # # #RichardCohen #BrendanBehan #Literatura #EscrituraCreativa #EscripturaCreativa

  • Brendan Francis Aidan Behan 1923 - 1964 Dublin, Ireland - Poet, novelist and playwright, Behan is known as one of the greatest Irish writers of all time, and wrote in both English and Irish. He was brought up on Irish history and classic literature, and at the age of 14 joined Fianna Éireann (the youth branch of the IRA). He published his first works of poetry through the organisation’s magazine, before being eligible to join the IRA at age 16. He was arrested for plotting an attack soon after, and sentenced to 3 years in various borstals. It was during this time that he decided to study the Irish language and learn to speak it fluently. Those years would later form the basis of his internationally best-selling autobiography ‘Borstal Boy’. Behan was known to hang around in pubs with other figures of the literati such as Patrick Kavanagh and Flann O’Brien, until a huge falling out which supposedly caused Kavanagh to visibly shudder at the mention of Behan’s name, calling him “evil incarnate”. In fact, the portraits of both writers in the Poet are placed next to each other, in the hopes that one day they might reconcile 😉 - - - - #poetprofiles #brendanbehan #borstalboy #thedrunkenpoet #irishpub #westmelbourne #northmelbourne #queenvictoriamarket #queenvicmarket #guinness #guinnessontap #guinnessaustralia #irishpoet #irishpoetry #irishauthor #irishauthors #patrickkavanagh #dublin #ireland #ira #oops #didit #doinitforthegram
