Edited by Louis de Paor / In eagar ag Louis de Paor

A generation before the groundbreaking achievements of Eavan Boland, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Biddy Jenkinson, Medbh McGuckian, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Rita Ann Higgins, and others, and in more daunting social circumstances, Máire Mhac an tSaoi’s poetry speaks to and from the intimate experience of women at a time when women’s voices were largely inaudible, on the margins of Irish literature and society. This bilingual selection of her work is the first substantial collection to introduce her poems to an English-language audience and a reminder to readers of Irish as to why she is one of the most significant poets to emerge since the beginning of the language revival almost a century and a half ago.

– Louis de Paor, from the Introduction

In Irish and English, translated by eleven Irish poets
