UCD Adult Education Course

The Big Four: Yeats, Joyce, Beckett, Heaney

Tuesday, 30 September - Tuesday 25 November 2014, 10am-12.30pm

Just noticed this is a mid week morning. So adult education but only if you're not at work. Or minding children. Hm. Not very impressive.

Anyway, if you are of that ilk, and have €195 to spend. here's the low down.

Through a series of eight lectures, students will engage with poetry, the short story, the novel and drama in examining the contributions of Yeats, Joyce, Beckett and Heaney to Irish and world literature. Classes will focus on key texts to investigate the aesthetic achievements of their work and its lasting influence.
To book a place, register at or contact UCD Adult Education Centre on 01-7167123.
Fee €195. 

There's also 
Living in the Modern World: ‘Modernism’ - the twentieth century’s soul 
The energy of the early twentieth century was reflected in brilliant literature: James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, TS Eliot and in new forms of art: film, jazz and architecture. ‘Living in the Modern World’ is a course which enables students to examine the historical and social change that inspired some of the greatest writers and artist of the twentieth century. Students will investigate and understand what Modernism was about and will learn to recognise and understand its various styles and characteristics and to trace their development by some of the most famous writers of the era. Time will also be given to how Modernism influenced music, film, painting, architecture. No previous knowledge or skills will be required beyond curiosity, enthusiasm and an interest in reading.
Fee: €190
