2004

Sunday, 7 March 2004
The Gossamer Wall (2002) is a collection of poetry that bears witness to the trauma of the Holocaust. The result of many years of immersion in the testimonies of survivors, it offers a fresh voice and a narrative style of great intensity.
 
In a powerful session, Micheal O'Siadhail read from his then recent book, and delved behind the gossamer wall to explore with Alan Jenkins how poetry can respond to the extermination camps. He also shared what motivated him to write this unique work.
