"To Sweeten Ireland's Wrong": Spoken-Word & Musical Reflections on W.B. Yeats & Irish Nationalism
Following President Hebert's participation in Savannah's world-famous St. Patrick's Day parade, the Center for Irish Research and Teaching (CIRT) is delighted to continue the University's celebration of our multicultural region's Irish heritage. Please join us at 1:00 pm on Monday, March 20, to enjoy spoken-word and musical reflections on Ireland's most famous poet, William Butler Yeats. Presenting will be two high-profile visitors from London, England: the Irish-born wife-and-husband team of Anne-Marie Fyfe and Cahal Dallat. These individuals are multi-award-winning poets and also musicians and literary critics. A former Chair of the Poetry Society, Fyfe enjoys the respect of such major literary figures as Tom Paulin, who wrote, "Fyfe’s poems have a lyric clarity—an ontological accuracy and unflinching vigilance—that is both spiritual and revelatory.” Dallat regularly contributes to the Times Literary Supplement, the Guardian newspaper, and BBC Radio 4. CIRT is grateful to the Fred and Donna Sanders Fund for Irish Studies Lectures for facilitating high-quality opportunities that enrich the Georgia Southern community and help advance its core goal: Academic Excellence.
