A Terrible Beauty: The Poetry of the Rising

A Terrible Beauty: The Poetry of the Rising

Celtic Club, Melbourne

15 April 2016 at 7.30pm

Among the leaders of the Rising were three poets: Pearse, MacDonagh and Plunkett. Their friends also included many poets. This event involves a reading of poems by the executed men, as well as poems about them by their friends, and their dramatic and moving stories will also be threaded through the readings. It's an intimate account of the Rising and one which gives much insight into the differences between the insurgents.
