In March I wrote another feature-length review for Rosie Goldsmith’s European Literature Network website.
This time I reviewed the two translations of Máirtin Ó Cadhain’s seminal Irish-language work Cre na Cille, pushlished by Yale University Press.
I preferred Alan Titley’s more vigorous, urgent version, published as The Dirty Dust, over Liam Mac Con Iomaire and Tim Robinson’s Graveyard Clay. However, either translation is a wonderful introduction to a truly masterful piece of twentieth-century modernist literature.
