Description: 

Leanne O'Sullivan and fellow Irish writers share one poem each, then reflect on what myths reveal about power and violence. The group will also respond to Hannah Arendt's "On Violence," relating the essay to their own work and to their reading of the contemporary moment. Rosemary Graham moderates.
