Selected Poems: Seán Ó Ríordáin

Frank Sewell (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology

Abstract

This selection of poems brings many of Ó Ríordáin’s works to English-language readers for the first time. The poems appear in their original Irish alongside English translations by some of Ireland's leading poets in English and / or Irish (including Paul Muldoon, Ciaran Carson, Eilish Martin, Mary O'Malley, Colm Breathnach and Paddy Bushe). Also included for the first time in English is Ó Ríordáin’s introduction to his first collection, Eireaball Spideoige (1952), an extraordinary touchstone of critical insight for poets and literary commentators. This new selected poems (with an introduction by Frank Sewell) reflects Ó Ríordáin’s seven main concerns: poetry and its place in the artist’s life; the plural self; the relationship between the individual and society; gender relations; the nature of animals; Ireland, its language and culture; and mortality.
