Category Irish Lecture Series
Year: 2016
Time: 67 minutes
No doubt poetry and theatre played a huge role in the events that led to the Easter Rising, but it is unlikely that any of the volunteers who saw action on Easter week signed up for combat solely because they read patriotic poems or attended nationalist plays. This lecture will explore the influence of literature and culture on Irish nationalist debate in advance of the Rising.
