About this CD
'Love's Doorway to Life' is a unique compilation of Patrick Kavanagh's work, which traces the story of his life from the drumlin hills of Monaghan to the Grand Canal in Dublin.
Together with her brother Art, also expert in the field, they follow in broad outline Kavanagh's poetic life and his struggle to fulfill his destiny as a writer.
Fully aware of his eccentric public persona and frequent social improprieties, these recordings remain attuned, to the poet's unique conviction that "posterity has no use for anything but the soul".
Utilising more than 50 excerpts that cover three stages of his life, Kavanagh is celebrated as the people's poet who captures the spirit of a people and immortalises cameos of Irish life in a lyrical language that is unsurpassed.
