Housed in an iconic Georgian townhouse on St. Stephen’s Green, a new museum dedicated to the literature of Ireland is set to open in Dublin. A collaboration between the country’s National Library and University College Dublin (James Joyce’s alma mater), the museum plans to offer interactive exhibitions on Irish writing that has shaped the nation’s history. As William Butler Yeats wrote in 1908, “I should never go for the scenery of a poem to any country but my own.” Also launching: a dedicated radio station. —J.V.
