The Muse of Yeats 2015
The inaugural ‘Muse Of Yeats’ festival takes place on the weekend of October 10 - 11 in the splendid surroundings of Rossnaree House overlooking the Boyne at Slane.
On the 150th anniversary of W. B. Yeats birth, this special event carries particular resonance as it is organised by and features contributions by living descendants of the real life ‘Muse of Yeats’ Maude Gonne. The festival’s host and curator is Aisling Law, Maud Gonne's great granddaughter and other family members including Imogen Stuart, Ireland's foremost sculptor, who will offer their reminiscences of the great lady.
The exciting programme of events includes intimate poetry readings and discussions by renowned Yeatsian scholars, novelist John Banville, poet Anthony Cronin and many more. There will also be an opportunity to enjoy the other elements of Yeats and Gonne’s intertwined lives through theatre, music and a unique exhibition of previously unseen artwork by Maud Gonne from the family's archive.
The event will culminate on Saturday evening of the 10th with a feast.
All proceeds go to the Irish Red Cross Syria Appeal.
