Forked Tongues: Galician, Basque and Catalan Women's Poetry in Translations by Irish Writers

book launch

Galicia, the Basque country and Catalonia have often found in Ireland an "inspiring Other" whether for political, social or cultural reasons. This anthology engages in an intercultural dialogue which redefines and strengthens the literary bonds among these communities. A selection of the most prominent Galician, Basque and Catalan contemporary women poets have their verse recreated in English by Irish writers. Together they enrich the European literary scene by celebrating its diversity.

Edited by Manuela Palacios and published by Shearsman, Forked Tongues features work by Pilar Pallarés, Chus Pato, Lupe Gómez Arto, Yolanda Castaño, María do Cebreiro (Galicia); Itxaro Borda, Miren Agur Meabe, Castillo Suárez, Leire Bilbao (Basque Country); Vinyet Panyella, Susanna Rafart, Gemma Gorga, Mireia Calafell (Catalonia).

Translations by: Maurice Harmon, Lorna Shaughnessy, Anne Le Marquand Hartigan, Máighréad Medbh, Mary O'Donnell, Celia de Fréine, Catherine Phil MacCarthy, Susan Connolly, Paddy Bushe, Michael O'Loughlin, Paula Meehan, Keith Payne, Theo Dorgan. Translation drafts by Kirsty Hooper, Diana Cullell and Juan Arana-Cobos.

Spanish wine will be served.
