"Around the fire at the club"
An entertainment based on the life and poetry of W.B. Yeats performed by Irish actor Frank Boyle with music by Markku Laurén. Tuesday 2.8. at 18.30 Hemingway's Bar in Hietalahti. William Butler Yeats was born in Dublin in the year 1865 and died in France in 1939. Across this time he became a Colossus of Irish literature and public life. He was intensely involved in the Irish literary Revival, the foundation of The Abbey National Theatre, a Senator of the Free Irish State and was awarded the Nobel Prize for literature. He struggled with belief all his life. A struggle for freedom of spirit, of intellect and of his race.
