Irish Literature as Performance (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Yasmin Lehmann

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 08:15 - 09:45 | 03.04.2023 - 07.07.2023 | C 5.310 Seminarraum

Inhalt: In this seminar, the focus will be on aspects of performance and storytelling in Irish literature and drama. We will closely analyse a selection of texts from Irish drama and poetry and explore different socio-historical contexts through the lens of dramatic performance and oral culture. Key texts in this seminar include Conor McPherson's 'The Weir' (1997), J.M. Synge's 'Riders to the Sea' (1904), Lady Gregory's 'Spreading the News' (1904) and a selection of poems.
