Host: Dylan Thomas Festival
Location: Dylan Thomas Centre, Somerset Place, Swansea, SA1 1RR
Speaker: Paul Durcan
Regarded by many as the great poet of contemporary Ireland, Paul Durcan is on top form in his latest collection, Praise in Which I Live and Move and Have my Being, as he contemplates the fall of the Celtic Tiger, while railing against bankers and 'bonus boys'. There are poems of love lost and won, and in memory of friends and relatives who have passed on, but there is also joy in the birth of a grandson, and praise, too, for the modest heroism of truckers, air traffic controllers and nurses. Durcan is an electrifying reader of his work – this is an event not to be missed.More Information
