Véarsa Saor: New Poetry in Irish with Translations


Tá mé i m’eagarthóir ar fhorlíonadh fhilíocht Ghaeilge (le haistriúcháin Béarla) san iris ar-líne Véarsa Saor. “Véarsa Saor: New Poetry in Irish with Translations” an teideal atá air. Clúdaíonn sé Louis de Paor, Dolores Stewart, Cathal Ó Searcaigh, Nuala Ní Chonchúir, Niamh Ní Lochlainn, Rody Gorman, Colette Nic Aodha agus Gabriel Rosenstock. Clic ar an nasc deireanach....

I have edited a supplement of contemporary Irish-language poetry, with English translations, for the latest number (12, Spring 2007) of the online journal Free Verse. It is titled “Véarsa Saor: New Poetry in Irish with Translations” and includes the names listed above – some of the best writers in Irish today – and is in my own obviously biased opinion well worth a look.
