Poetry Programme Yeats Special

June 13, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The final episode of this season of the Poetry Programme on RTÉ Radio One celebrates the work of WB Yeats on the day of the 150th anniversary of his birth (13 June 1865). Professor Nicholas Grene of TCD and Dr Lucy Collins of UCD discuss his work and reputation with the programme’s presenter, Rick O’Shea. Members of a long-running Poetry Society read and discuss his work, poet Martin Dyar chooses a favourite poem, and we end with a reading of one of our greats by another: Seamus Heaney reading Yeats’ poem ‘What then?’
