The best benefits that Sariel could shower upon the bare stones of Aran would be a few showers of clay
A feature programme written and produced by W. R. Rodgers West of Ireland, on the bleak and stormy edge of Europe, lie the Aran Islands. With prodigious labour and hardship, generations of islanders have covered the bare rocks with soil, and this wilderness of stone has become one of the richest and most colourful pockets of Gaelic life and tradition.

John Donne
Talk by J.-B. Leishman, Senior Lecturer in English Literature at Oxford University
The speaker' believes that most modem critics take Donne's dialectic technique and philosophic references too seriously; he agrees with Dryden that Donne merely 'affects the Metaphysics' and claims that, however argumentative, he is essentially an unphilosophic poet.
