WB Yeats’ magical words echo throughout 20th century poetry & we’re celebrating his 150th birthday by sharing & listening to favourite poems in honour of our former Bedford Park Nobel-Prize-winning neighbour!
Our special guest, international journalist, broadcaster & author Fergal Keane, will introduce & read his own selection of much-loved Yeats’ poems.
So do bring a favourite poem to read (your own, or one by a well-known poet, max. 25 lines) on any one of the great Yeatsian themes—place, dreams, myth, magic, politics, the modern world, youth, age, romantic love: (if not your own poem, make your choice anything other than Yeats since we’re leaving that entirely in Fergal’s capable hands…)
