The Lesson of Louis MacNeice
This event is sold out.
On the 60th anniversary of his death, we celebrate the life and legacy of Louis MacNeice. Paul Muldoon, Ireland Professor of Poetry, introduces a programme of readings from, and reminiscences of, the great Irish poet.
Paul Muldoon is regarded as one of Ireland’s greatest contemporary poets, known for the sophisticated handling of poetic form and technique. Born in Portadown in the 1950s, he served as the Oxford Professor of Poetry until 2004, when he relocated to New York where he lives. Muldoon holds a Pulitzer Prize for Poetry and a T. S. Eliot Prize among many recognitions of his work. In November 2022, he was appointed as the Ireland Professor of Poetry. Join the author of 14 collections of verse, for a reading from his work this February at The Linen Hall.
