James Harpur to read at Cork Spring Literary Festival 2011



Reading with Tomas Lieske & William Wall, Wednesday 16 February, 9pm


James Harpur has published four volumes of poetry with Anvil Press, including his latest, The Dark Age, which won the 2009 Michael Hartnett Prize. Anvil have also published Fortune’s Prisoner, his translation of the poems of Boethius. George Szirtes described one of his readings as ‘beautiful ... melancholy, monastic, mystical, like prayers shaped out of despair with the hearsay of some small light just over the horizon’.
