Glimpsing the Depths of Irish Poetry
Michael O'Malley, a university lecturer and Study Center board member, will be leading a group through selections from the rich tradition of Irish poetry.
Ireland’s poetry is known for its masterful interweaving of the natural and spiritual worlds and for its nuanced treatments of beauty and sorrow. Among the ranks of Irish poets are some of the most influential writers in the English language: Yeats, Heaney, Boland, to name just a few. In this group, we will read an array of Irish poems - some classic, some contemporary - with the aim of exploring their depths together.
Dates: September 22nd, October 6th, October 20th, and November 10th.
Time: 5:10 p.m.
Location: Study Center classroom
