PenFest 2019: Book Launch: Ah, Men! by Simon Lewis
1st November 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Ah, Men! is the 2nd poetry collection by Simon Lewis, winner of the 2016 Hennessy Prize for Poetry and finalist in the 2017 Shine/Strong Prize for his first book, Jewtown. In these new poems, Lewis considers what it means to be male in 21st century Ireland. Reflecting on how the role of the male in Irish society is changing rapidly, he hones in on fathers, husbands and sons in their comfortable and uncomfortable relationships, in urban and rural settings, and in their loneliness and isolation. Now that everything—once acceptable and often expected—has moved on, where do men in Ireland find themselves?
