The lyric flow of street



The poems that appear in the anthology If Ever You Go, reflect the broad spectrum of relationships that exist between the city and those that inhabit, however briefly, its public and private spaces.

In this lecture, poet Micheal O’Siadhail, looks at how these poems express the varying emotions generated by the experience of Dublin.

Featuring reflections on poems by Patrick Kavanagh, Brendan Kennelly and John Montague, among others, this talk considers the poetry of the Dublin streets and what it tells us about the relationship between the city and its people.
