Love's Doorway To Life - An Alternative Biography Of Patrick Kavanagh - 3 Audio CDs

AGNEW, UNA & ART
797776424573
‘Love’s Doorway to Life’ is a unique compilation of Patrick Kavanagh’s work, which traces the story of his life from the drumlin hills of Monaghan to the Grand Canal in Dublin. Together with her brother Art, also expert in the field, they follow in broad outline Kavanagh’s poetic life and his struggle to fulfil this destiny as a writer. Fully aware of his eccentric public persona and frequent social improprieties, these recordings remain attuned, to the poet’s unique conviction that “posterity has no use for anything but the soul”. Utilising more than 50 excerpts that cover three stages of his life, Kavanagh is celebrated as the people’s poet who captures the spirit of a people and immortalises cameos of Irish life in a lyrical language that is unsurpassed. Disc One: Poet and Farmer, the poet’s early Doorway to life and love Disc Two: Exile in Dublin and search for Recognition Disc Three: Turning Point, Rebirth and Final Years The words of Patrick Kavanagh are spoken with the kind permission of the trustees of the estate of the late Katherine B. Kavanagh, through the Jonathan Williams Literary Agency. The script is by Dr Úna Agnew
