Lewis Center for the Arts presents Poet James Longenbach on W.B. Yeats

(PRINCETON, NJ) --  On January 28, 2022 at 4:30, the Lewis Center for the Arts presents poet and literary critic James Longenbach, author of Forever and The Lyric Now, with a lecture on W.B. Yeats’ poem “Nineteen Hundred and Nineteen” on the anniversary of Yeats’ death. Longenbach will discuss how the poem assumed the shape it does, and, more importantly, the influence of that shape on subsequent long poems written throughout the 20th century and beyond. This is part of the 2021-22 Fund for Irish Studies lecture series.

The Fund for Irish Studies affords all Princeton students, and the community at large, a wider and deeper sense of the languages, literatures, drama, visual arts, history, politics, and economics not only of Ireland but of “Ireland in the world.” The series is produced by the Lewis Center for the Arts and the 2021-22 edition of the series is organized by Paul Muldoon and Fintan O’Toole.

The Fund for Irish Studies is generously sponsored by the Durkin Family Trust and the James J. Kerrigan, Jr. ’45 and Margaret M. Kerrigan Fund for Irish Studies.
