About the Event
A personal journey by Irish actor-director, Larry McCluskey through the late Nobel Poet’s best and most popular work. The journey moves from Heaney’s childhood, through his emergence as Ireland’s foremost poet, international eminence and awards to the 1995 Nobel Prize for Literature.
Heaney was not just Ireland’s finest modern poet – he was a colossus on the world literary stage and a wise commentator in the long journey to the Irish Peace Process. The reading ends with the poet’s powerful late work, health setback and unexpected death.
