Moving to Dublin

In 1939, after a short time in London, Patrick Kavanagh joined his brother Peter in Dublin. The city would become his home until his death in 1967. The poet's relationship with Dublin was ambivalent. Kavanagh claimed to feeling like an exile in Dublin where for many years he struggled to make a living as a writer. Yet Kavanagh became a 'Dublin character' and the city had an important influence on his poetry.
