To Sweeten Ireland’s Wrong: W. B. Yeats in the 1890s, Daniel Mulhall, Ireland’s ambassador, Nov. 6, 2017
Mulhall is an avid scholar of Irish history and literature, particularly the work of W.B. Yeats, and has presented on a wide range of topics at universities all over the world. His lecture title is taken from a line in the Yeats poem, "To Ireland in the Coming Times." Mulhall's lecture offers an ideal connection to the Rose Library's Irish literary collections, which includes materials from Eamon Grennan, Seamus Heaney, Rita Ann Higgins, Michael Longley, Derek Mahon, and Paul Muldoon. "Our papers related to Yeats are a cornerstone of Rose Library's literary collections," says Rosemary M. Magee, Rose Library director. "We're most honored to have Ambassador Mulhall at Emory to give us an even broader and deeper understanding of Yeats' place in Irish literature and history."
