Writings from a world where the poet is king

THE legendary King Canute might well have fought the ‘ungovernable sea’ but it was left to his namesake, international poet, Knute Skinner, to savour the pleasures of peaceful coexistence.
Born in St Louis, Missouri, Knute is the recipient of a Bachelor of Arts (BA) Degree from the University of Northern Colorado, an MA from Middlebury College’s ‘Bread Loaf’ School of English and a PhD from the University of Iowa. He is also a long-time resident of Killaspuglonane, near Lahinch.
