Paul Sheehan was born in Dublin and first moved to London in the late 1950s. He taught Irish literature at London Metropolitan University in the 1990s and was tutor on the Summer School in its early years. His stage-play, Pluarabelles, which isa dramatic evocation of the women in James Joyce’s work, was first performed at the Edinburgh Festival in 1991 and recently revived in London. Paul also published a volume of poetry entitled Flowers Through Concrete in 1986 and joins us on this year’s Summer School, to discuss his most recent work.
