Robert Lowell and Ireland



Robert Lowell and Ireland: A Centenary Symposium
Sunday 5th March, 2pm, the Hunting Room, Stable Wing.
 
Robert Lowell (1917-1977) was a major American poet whose work continues to influence writers today. In the 1970s Lowell spent time live at Castletown House with his third wife, the writer Caroline Blackwood. During this time he was also friendly with a number of Irish poets, including Seamus Heaney.

To celebrate Lowell's connections with Castletown and Ireland, this event will bring together four contemporary Irish poets who will read from his work and their own: Gerald Dawe, Paul Muldoon, Eiléan Ní Chuilleaneáin and Julie O'Callaghan, with introductions by Prof. Stephen Matterson, TCD.

Presented in partnership with the School of English and Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences Trinity College Dublin and Poetry Ireland.
