Carcanet Press is our most courageous publisher. When you look at what they have brought out since their beginnings, it makes so many other houses seem timid or merely predictable.

Four Irish Poets: Poetry Aldeburgh

Sunday 7 Nov 2021, 19:00 to 20:00



Can we live with the past, yet not be consumed by it? This event will show how themes of the sacred and the profane materialise in contemporary Irish poetry.

With lyrics on sex, grief, loss, as well as hope and new life, Seán Hewitt will read from his book Tongues of Fire (Cape 2020). Róisín Kelly's Mercy (Bloodaxe 2020), attempts to reconcile her Catholic background with her pagan heritage, while Aoife Lyall's Mother, Nature (Bloodaxe 2021) explores the tragic and tender experiences of pregnancy and early motherhood. Victoria Kennefick's daring first book, Eat or We Both Starve (Carcanet 2021), forges recognisable set pieces into new shapes, 'giving us poems that are honest and fearless' (Rebecca Goss). Unmissable!
