    Anne Makower 30 Nov 2021 Podcast MST

    In association with the exhibition All Right on the Night, Anne Makower gave a talk on the Makower family and how they came from Poland to set up a textiles business in London in the mid 19th century. Anne’s grandfather Stanley Makower was a writer/journalist and Anne discussed the correspondence between Stanley and Oscar Wilde who was highly enthusiastic about Stanley’s most celebrated novel, The Mirror of Music.

    This talk took place as part of a series of events coinciding with the exhibition All Right on the Night celebrating the work of Anne Makower and Christopher Fitz-Simon in theatre, opera, television and radio. The exhibition can be enjoyed online at https://libraries.dlrcoco.ie/events-and-news/online-exhibition#all-right-on-the-night

    Speranza: Oscar’s Mama

    Speranza: Oscar’s Mama

    We are pleased to present a talk by Christopher Fitz-Simon on Jane Francesca Elgee, later Mrs William Wilde, later still Lady Wilde, who was born in Wexford 200 years ago. A poet who wrote inflammatory patriotic verse for The Nation newspaper, she was better known in the world of literature during their lifetimes than her now much more celebrated son – upon whose life she cast such an extraordinary spell.
