This powerful collection translated from the Irish (which is shown on opposing pages) is a gravelly thick-textured tongue of particulars flecked with loneliness and deceitfulness and desire.

Ó Searcaigh's collection is a must for anyone in Irish or Celtic studies.

It is hard to not read his work with that in mind (it colors the meaning of several poems).
