This course is a general introduction to critically reading some of Ireland’s best literature with reflection on the poetic technique in poetry and in prose.
We will begin early in the 20th century with W.B Yeats, progress to Patrick Kavanagh, Molly Keane and Maeve Brennan. The second half of the course discusses more recent writers: Colm Toibin, Naoise Dolan, Belinda McKeon and concluding with a selection of contemporary Irish Poetry.
By the end of the course participants will have read and discussed a number of Ireland’s authors and critically analysed their themes. Irish Literature: From Yeats to McKeon – REMOTE is an exciting and highly enjoyable new course which would be ideal for the literary enthusiast or anyone preparing to study English at third level.
