He’s So Modern: Geldof on Yeats He’s So Modern: Geldof on Yeats


Two-part documentary which examines W.B.Yeats' life and work in the context of the cultural revolution that preceded 1916.

Clár faisnéise dhá pháirt ina scrúdaítear saol agus saothar W.B. Yeats i gcomhthéacs na réabhlóide cultúir a tharla roimh 1916.

Musician and activist Bob Geldof has a long-standing admiration for the work of the poet W.B. Yeats. “I can’t imagine my life without travelling with one of [Yeats’] books. [...] When words fail, his words will do.”

Written by Bob Geldof and historian and Yeats scholar Roy Foster, this landmark two-part documentary series examines W.B. Yeats’ life and work in the context of the cultural revolution that preceded 1916, illustrating how his work remains as pertinent today as when it was first written.

Tá meas agus ómós ag an gceoltóir agus ag an ngníomhaí Bob Geldof ar shaothar an fhile W.B. Yeats le fada an lá. “Ní bheinn in ann dul in aon áit gan leabhar leis [Yeats]. [...] Nuair nach mbím in ann aon rud a rá, is leor a chuid cainte.”

Is iad Bob Geldof agus an staraí agus scoláire ar Yeats Roy Foster a scríobh an clár faisnéise tábhachtach seo a thaispeánfar ina dhá chuid. Déantar scrúdú ann ar shaol agus ar shaothar W.B. Yeats i gcomhthéacs na réabhlóide cultúir a tharla roimh 1916, agus léirítear go bhfuil a shaothar chomh tábhachtach inniu is a bhí sé an chéad lá riamh ar scríobhadh é.
