Carlow College, St. Patrick’s invites you to our public lecture focusing on Leaving Cert poetry where Dr Derek Coyle explores ‘Made Young, Made Whole Again’: The Transformative Dynamics of Poetry.
Four Leaving Certificate Poems Examined: Donne, Duffy, Shelley, Meehan.
In his lecture, Dr Derek Coyle will look at how four poets have engaged with such everlasting concerns as romance, seduction, tyranny, and the ravages of time. He will explore poetic techniques like the extended metaphor, the dramatic monologue, and the sonnet. Female and male, ancient and contemporary, four poets will be examined, something for both the Honours and Ordinary Leaving Certificate English student of 2023, as well as the general poetry lover and reader.
