Launch of Proposition by Arnie Yasinski

  • Poetry Ireland, 11 Parnell Square East, Dublin 1
  • Tickets: Free

21st Century Renaissance is delighted to launch the debut collection entitled Proposition of an American poet living in Ireland, Arnie Yasinski. 

This collection finds him playing pool as a teenager with a wounded veteran in the VA town where he lived, then married at 19, divorced, and living through the inescapable mid-life crisis.  Full of longing and quintessentially male (As one of the higher apes,/libido smoldering like the map/of the Ponderosa) Arnie's poems will bear reading again and again. His proposition is uncompromising: this is him, as he is, unique yet a refraction of all men. A performance of some jazz standards by the RDS Singers will open the evening.
