Mountains to Sea dlr Book Festival presents, March 27th at 11 AM GMT, Two Poets with Tishani Doshi
From the organizers:
We meet two poets at the height of their powers, former Ireland Professor of Poetry Paula Meehan for an exploration of her generous collection of selected poems As If By Magic and Tishani Doshi with her new collection A God at the Door. Paula is one of Ireland’s most distinctive poetic voices, her uncompromising engagement with the politics of gender and class, her love of the natural world and her grief at what threatens it, her holistic and visionary impulses to be grateful for her place in creation are hallmarks of her work. Tishani Doshi’s work likewise bestows power on the powerless, deploys beauty to bear trauma and enables the voices of the oppressed to be heard with piercing clarity. Tishani has been described as ‘a witty, wise and clear-eyed novelist, dancer and poet’ who ‘deploys both range and sharp analysis covering issues from the precarious state of the environment to the treatment of women’ in her new collection A God at the Door.
