The University of Lisbon Centre for English Studies invites you to this year's Embassy of Ireland Lecture, which will take place at the Faculty of Letters, University of Lisbon, Room D. Pedro V, on Friday, 8 November, from 2 p.m. till 3.30 p.m.  We are pleased to welcome Professor R.F. Foster, Carroll Professor of Irish History at Hertford College, University of Oxford, who will talk about "The Fascination of What's Difficult': W.B.Yeats and Irish History"

The author of a vast and varied bibliography, including the influential Modern Ireland 1600-1972 (1988), the much acclaimed two-volume biography W.B. Yeats: A Life (1997 and 2003), and Words Alone: Yeats and his Inheritances (2011), Professor Roy Foster is a distinguished historian and a well-known critic, reviewer and broadcaster whose current research focuses on the Irish revolutionary generation (1890-1916). He is therefore exceptionally well placed to talk to us about the poet William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) and the Ireland he lived in and wrote about.

Come and join us at the Embassy of Ireland Lecture 2013!

Free admission.
