A event to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the publication of Brendan Kennelly's long poem Cromwell, organised by the School of English.

Marking the fortieth anniversary of the publication of Brendan Kennelly’s long poem Cromwell, this event will bring together a number of scholars and writers to consider the work’s sources, reception, and legacy. Reading Cromwell in relation to historical and literary contexts, speakers will consider Kennelly’s work forty years after its publication, but a number of poets will also discuss their sense of its significance to the practice of poetry today.
