Henri Cole - On a rare visit to Ireland

The School of English, together with Poetry Ireland, hosted a reading by American poet Henri Cole on Wednesday the 30th of November. Henri Cole, the author of nine books of poems, was awarded a Merit Medal by the American Academy of Arts and Letters in March 2016, and his most recent book is Nothing to Declare (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2015).

"Cole’s poems explore the intersection of the domestic and the ecstatic, with language that both chafes against and sings toward its source in the body."
