Nicholas Grene of Trinity College, Dublin and a regular at the Yeats Summer and Winter schools, speaks on the key words and habits of speech in Yeats’s poetry, such as the use of dates and place names within individual poems; certain Yeatsian words (dream, bitter, sweet) and images (birds and beasts); and dialogue and monologue as the voices of his dramatic lyrics. Copies of his Oxford University Press book on this subject, Yeats' Poetic Codes, will be on sale. In cooperation with and at NYU’s Glucksman Ireland House, 1 Washington Mews, east side of Fifth Avenue one block north of Washington Square Arch. Free to Yeats Society and GIH members.
