This one got away, but we hope it will return, somewhere, sometime.

The wonderful writer Colm Tóibín sifted through the early writings of the much-beloved poet Eavan Boland to script a performance that was livestreamed all too briefly. Performed by Siobhán Cullen, Boland: Journey of a Poet is now available, alas, only as a preview and a very informative downloadable show program.

It may come around again. Watch for it.

“Poetry begins where language starts: in the shadows and accidents of one person’s life.”

Poems Out Loud

St. Patrick’s Day seems an auspicious time to listen to some Irish poets reading their own words. Poems Out Loud is a good place to start. Listen to Seamus Heaney, Eavan Boland, Paul Muldoon and others poets — Irish and otherwise — as they share their work aloud.

Happy Mother’s Day!

“It took time for me to understand that everybody, in the end, generates his or her own ecosystem as a writer. And, if you don’t, nobody else is going to give it to you.” Eaven Boland
