TALK & READINGS: Revolutionary Poetry.
The 1916 Rising is often referred to as a ‘poet’s revolution’. Taking this as her starting point, poet Emily Cullen PhD, will introduce the work of international poets of revolution – historic and contemporary – including Anna Akhmatova, Osip Mandelstam and Rafeef Ziadah.
After that Galway-based Albanian poet Ndrek Gjini MA, who lived through the oppressive Enver Hoxha regime in the 1980s, will talk about Communism in the Balkans in the middle of the 20th Century and will discuss the work of Visar Zhiti and Vaclav Havel. He also will read from his work.
All Are Welcome!
