Michael Murphy is a broadcaster, psychoanalyst and author. With presenter Ciana Campbell, he has staged his show Stories Poetry and Dreams at venues all over Ireland, and in the United States where it was “recommended” by The New York Times.
Michael and Ciana will be performing poems from his latest book The Ministry of Dreams – Collected Poems published in November. Michael writes accessible and engaging poetry that speaks to our experience of modern life. He explores themes of identity, love, death, sexuality, politics, religion and language, in poems that move the heart with deep emotion and appeal to the intellect through their wisdom. Running throughout each poem is a proud affirmation of life and a steadfast belief in the transcendence and sacredness of love.
“Those of us fortunate to have heard Michael use his voice to perform his poems have understood clearly the full meaning of Lorca’s duende, and appreciate the bravura of duende’s artistic daring and grace when delivered by a master poet with an Irish accent.” Dr. Jeannine Woods, School of Languages, Literatures and Cultures, NUI Galway.
This event will take place in The House of Waterford Crystal on Thursday the 20th February, doors open at 7.30pm with the show beginning at 8.00pm. It will be in two halves with a short break in the middle. Michael will present on his latest poetry book and the audience will be encouraged to ask questions and engage in this unique event. The price for entry is 15 EURO and tickets can be reserved by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, calling the Event Hotline on 087 9293553, or at the reception of The House of Waterford Crystal.
It is an evening not to be missed, come along and enjoy the company of one of Ireland’s most recognisable faces and voices. If you are in a book club, make it your event, if you like literature it is a must, bring along the family and enjoy a fun filled evening followed by a book signing with Michael. On completion all are invited to The Munster Bar for finger food and a chance to chat on the nights offerings. We hope to see you there, book early!
