Seamus Heaney, Francisco Goya, and Unveiling the Myth of History

This Wednesday lunchtime, James Byrne will attempt to ‘walk the walk’ of the act his students would claim he ‘talks the talk’. He will attempt to both perform and show the value of critical reading by closely analyzing “Summer 1969” by Seamus Heaney – nothing like the Bryan Adam’s song – to show how Heaney’s deep reflection on Goya’s aesthetic allows him to reimagine and challenge the historical reality of violence in Northern Ireland.

Presented by James Byrne, Visiting Assistant Professor of English.
All are welcome to attend.
