Talk about ‘Such Friends’! Ireland’s La Passionara, Maud Gonne, was not strictly a member of the Irish Literary Renaissance–although she did act in some of the Abbey Theatre’s early productions–she was Yeats’ muse. We will look at their relationship in the context of his life and friends, and see some fascinating video clips from the DVD, Yeats and His Women, produced by the National Library of Ireland.
The presentation will be held on Monday, 11 October, 2010, from 1 to 2 pm at the Birmingham & Midland Institute in city centre. Admission for non-members is £2, but the first person to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org can come free as my guest!
For more information about the BMI, their weekly lunchtime talks and other events, e-mail me or Philip Fisher at Philip@bmi.org.uk.
Hope to see you there!
