PODCAST: Dr Frank Shovlin on “Yeats in Liverpool, Perhaps” at the Liverpool Irish Festival
The Liverpool Irish Festival starts this week and will see a celebration of Irish culture and arts.
As part of my role as board member for the festival, I interviewed Dr Frank Shovlin, head of department at the University of Liverpool’s Institute of Irish Studies, about his lecture on W.B. Yeats and his links to Liverpool.
Frank has a forensic eye for detail which has allowed him to become one of the foremost scholars of Irish literary culture and James Joyce and John McGahern in particular. We are immensely lucky to have him living and working in our city.
