Quote of the Day
Carcanet has always been the place to look for considerations of purely literary and intellectual merit. Its list relies on the vision and the faith and the energy of people who care about books, and values. It is thus as rare as it is invaluable.
Frederic Raphael

Vahni Capildeo: ILF Dublin


Friday 24 May 2019, 18:00 to 20:00
Location:

Poetry Ireland
11 Parnell Square East
Rotunda
Dublin
D01 ND60

Description:

Join us for an exceptional evening with two poets expanding the range and invention of contemporary poetry.

Vahni Capildeo comes to Dublin to read from their new collection Skin Can Hold, a book about art and performance, ranging across forms, from soliloquy to prose, and displaying the wit and imagination which won her the Forward Prize for Poetry in 2016. Ailbhe Darcy's collection Insistence ranges from intimate poems about motherhood to longer sequences engaged with the big geopolitical questions of our time. It was described by David Wheatley as 'boldly overhauling the received categories of the Irish poem with cunning and humour'.

Tickets for this event are 10/8 euro and can be bought here.
