The Charitable Irish Society will present, Poetry and Prose from Across the Atlantic, an evening of social gathering and entertainment with recitations and readings of selected Irish, Scottish and English verse and prose.
The evening will feature a cocktail reception, and include recitation of works by William Butler Yeats (1865- 1939), who is widely considered to be one of the greatest Irish poets that ever lived.
“Out of the quarrel with others we make rhetoric;
out of the quarrel with ourselves we make poetry.”
