Robert Lowell Profile on RTÉ’s Arena

RL

 

On the 2nd of March I visited RTÉ’s Arena to do a profile on Robert Lowell for the week of his centenary.

Lowell was a poet I thought I knew, but it was great to have an opportunity to revisit the work with the intention of trying to put together a broad overview of the work. Time flies on live radio, but I did manage to squeeze in readings of some of my favourite poems.

There are some interesting books on Lowell published this year, including a new biography by Kay Redfield Jamsion, which pays particular attention to his psychology.

You can listen to the feature here.
