Poetry Reading by Irish Poet Micheal O'Siadhail Monday, October 18 from 6-7:30 p.m. in the Hurford Humanities Center’s Seminar Room, Stokes 102
Winner of the Marten Toonder Prize and The Irish American Culture Institute Prize for Literature, his work has been compared by some to Dante, John Milton and Patrick Kavanagh,but most often to John Donne. Recent criticism has drawn attention to the depth and range of his intellectual engagements. Mary O’Donnell traced the influence of the philosopher Emmanuel Levinas in A Fragile City and the academic and critic Eugene O’Brien, editor of The Irish Book Review, described his work as “that rare combination of the intellectual and the emotional”. Hearty refreshments will be served.
The reading is sponsored by the John B. Hurford ’60 Humanities Center through its Leaves of Grass Fund.
