Irish Literature: Poets & Poetry

This exciting new course investigates a series of poets and poetry starting early in the 20th century and working our way up to the present day. Poets featured in this program are George William Russell/AE, Denis Devlin, Derek Mahon, Leland Bardwell, Eavan Boland, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Dylan Brennan and Doireann Ní Ghríofa. The sessions will be supported by a weekly video, several readings of the works and commentary, plus other media where available. The course will be a very enjoyable and rewarding tour of 20th/21st century poetry, with the overarching question of what is Irish Poetry? What has the shape of Irish Poetry been over the past century? Where is it going next? Suitable for enthusiasts of Irish Literature at all levels and those considering study of English at University. Presented by Dr Martin Keaveney, John McGahern scholar and Associate Lecturer at NUIG in Irish Literature.
