Résumé : In this interview, conducted in the Summer of 2014, Frank McGuinness talks about his introduction to Old and Middle English as a student in University College Dublin and its influence on his writings. Particular attention is given to his enormously successful play, "Someone Who'll Watch Over Me", which was nominated for two New York Critics awards in 1993. In the interview, Mc Guinness addresses the place of earlier literature on the university curriculum and how we might continue to assert its value. His remarks on the importance of allowing students access to the whole range of literature of a particular culture, alongside his observations on his own teachers, and the texts he studied as an undergraduate and postgraduate student are reflective of the breadth and depth of his immersion in the texts of the Old and Middle English period and his commitment to teaching. In the explorations on "Someone Who'll Watch Over Me", McGuinness addresses the centrality of music, the difference between heroism and courage, as well as the ways in which the play enabled him to both distance himself from and to engage with the key themes of loneliness, isolation, and endurance that are at the centre of the play.
