Electric Light: A Seamus Heaney Seminar w/ C.L. Dallat

On Sunday 9th March The Troubadour will be hosting a Seamus Heaney poetry workshop in the gallery upstairs. This event is dedicated to the works of celebrated poet Seamus Heaney.

You’ll have a chance to explore the development of an amazing poetic gift from the urgency & innocence of Death of a Naturalist (1966), through the complexities of the middle years in The Haw Lantern & Seeing Things to the emotional riches of Electric Light, District & Circle, & the deeply moving Human Chain (2010): & an opportunity to explore a journey from life on a 1940s Country Derry farm by way of Queens University Belfast to Harvard, the Nobel prize & international status as the best-known poet in the world (The Independent).

With Cahal Dallat, poet, musician & critic, b. Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, has written on contemporary poetry for Guardian, TLS, Poetry Review, Wasafiri, Poetry Ireland Review, Poetry London & The North (among others): a regular contributor to Saturday Review (BBC R4) over the past 15 years, he has won the Strokestown International Poetry Competition & his latest collection is The Year of Not Dancing (Blackstaff, 2009).
