Penguin Live presents Paul Kelly on Love is Strong as Death

Featuring live music by Paul Kelly with Alice Keath, this unmissable night will challenge you, uplift you and inspire you to make poetry a lifetime friend.

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Paul Kelly sings and recites poems that have brought him joy and inspiration throughout his life and shares the stories behind their inclusion in his new book, Love is Strong as Death: Poems Chosen by Paul Kelly.  

From Shakespeare and WB Yeats to Walt Whitman and Dylan Thomas, from Gwen Harwood and Sylvia Plath to Dennis Glover and Les Murray these are works of poetry that speak to the two great themes of literature that have proven so powerful in Paul Kelly’s own music: love and death – and everything in between.
