Event description

Description

Professor Jim Lucey, Medical Director of St Patrick’s Mental Health Services, Dublin, and Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at Trinity College, is a well-known advocate of poetry’s benefits for mental well-being. Irish language poet Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill will join Professor Lucey to share favourite poems and to discuss how her work has been influenced by her relationship with her Mother, in particular.

The American poet Louise Glück famously wrote that “We look at the world once, in childhood. The rest is memory.” Perhaps this is why so many poets have been deeply influenced by their childhood. “They tuck you up, your mum and dad” (Adrian Mitchell’s softer take on Philp Larkin’s original line) is the title for this series of conversations featuring some of Ireland's finest writers and poets as they reflect on the often complex parent / child relationship through memoir and poetry.
