Behind the Lines video series

Behind the Lines is an initiative of the Poetry Ireland Poet in Residence to engage Leaving Cert students with poems and poets on their English and Irish courses. Writers read their poems, which are on the Leaving Cert curriculum, and discuss their inspiration and imagery, contextualising the work in a personal way that enriches the experience of students.

Other writers explore favourite poets on the curriculum, from Emily Dickinson to Francis Ledwidge, bringing their own poetic sensibility to bear on their chosen work.

These videos are also available to watch on this YouTube Playlist.
