Last Wednesday, I had the pleasure of entering my usual Friday morning lecture hall, to listen to Kelvin Corcoran read from his new book of poems Facing West.
His fascination with Greek mythology infused his poems, which moved between past and present in a way which captivated his audience.
Through visiting Greece regularly, Kelvin Corcoran has created an intimate bond with the country. This was
reflected in the way he spoke about his conversations with
locals, stating that Greek mythology is simply "a series of local tales
with no final version - a rare experience for a western man."
