Louis MacNeice: The Celt, the Cat and the Cave

Sunday 9 September 2007 21:15-22:00 (Radio 3)

To celebrate the centenary of the Irish poet's birth, Paul Muldoon and other poets and critics offer personal assessments of Louis MacNeice's work.

They reflect on his Celtic inheritance and its influence on the work, test the premise in The Times obituary that MacNeice was 'a cat who walked by himself', and consider the circumstances of his death in 1963, occasioned by a visit to a cave in Yorkshire, followed by a drenching on the moors which led to pneumonia.

Duration:

45 minutes
