"Ó Searcaigh mixes the open-singing eroticism of Whitman with a sharp eye for the profound minutiae of the physical world.”"—Billy Collins
One of the major poets of modern Ireland, Cathal Ó Searcaigh has made a huge contribution to the range and scope of Irish language literature over the past four decades. This volume, drawn from six ground-breaking collections published over the past fifteen years, testifies to his lyrical genius and his enduring importance at the very heart of what is happening in Gaelic literature today. Here, Paddy Bushe, Gabriel Rosenstock and Frank Sewell, three of the most noted translators of contemporary Irish language literature, use the full range of their brilliance to render Ó Searcaigh’s work into faithful but fully realized English language poems.
