About this Event

The Shaking Bog

Marquee, Glencree Centre

“Like all women of her generation My mother had a secret “ Paul Durcan “I ask: what is my mother now? and the forest answers with a letter written in dew on a leaf” Pascale Petit

Pascale Petit and Paul Durcan are two of the most individual voices writing poetry today. Brave and vulnerable in equal measure, they both possess a dazzling imagination and breath-taking honesty. Individually, they have fearlessly explored mental illness, the emotional complexities of family and the sense of place. But they also share a profound, almost magical, ability to see the mythic in the mundane.

Paul Durcan, one of Ireland’s most respected and beloved poets, and Pascale Petit - whose recent collection Mama Amazonica won the prestigious RSL Ondaatje Prize - will read from their distinctive bodies of work and, afterwards, explore their work in aninformal conversation.
