Faculty and postgraduate students in the English Department have a wide range of research interests, and personal interests. In this blog, we will be sharing some of these. Watch for new pieces appearing regularly...
I recently published some short pieces in the latest issue of the online magazine Southword – my first poems in an e-publication, and accessible at http://www.munsterlit.ie/Southword/Issues/18/contents.html. These are verse epigrams that riff on classical figures, and are selected from a longer string that I’ve been writing.
I’ve been reading crime fiction more or less since I was old enough to read. My mother (like so many millions of her generation) was an Agatha Christie fan, so somewhere between A.A. Milne and Tolkien I read my way through a swathe of the Hercule Poirot novels (which we both agreed were superior to Miss Marple).
[Chris Morash wrote the programme note for the production of Arrah na Pogue that opened at the Abbey Theatre on December 21, 2010. What follows are a few reflections written the morning after opening night.]
Chris Morash keeps a diary of the 2012 Dublin Theatre Festival, with reviews of Everyone is King Lear in His Own Home, Hamlet, The Boys of Foley Street, and Halcyon Days, reflections on postdramatic theatre, and other stray thoughts.
