About: This book is an anthology of modern Irish-language poetry from six poets who all emerged in the second half of the 20th century. Each poem is printed in Irish with an English translation opposite. The poets represented are: Michael Davitt, Caitlín Maude, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Micheál Ó hAirtnéide, Liam Ó Muirthile and Cathal Ó Searcaigh. The section that interests us is that devoted to 10 poems by Caitlín Maude each of which has been translated into English by Michael Hartnett (Micheál Ó hAirtnéide). Overall the book is an excellent introduction to modern poetry in Irish for people who are not that well versed in the Irish language.
