Nova Libro de Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill

…de la Guardian:

The Fifty Minute Mermaid is the most recent dual-language collection by Irish poet Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill. Her 1986 Rogha Dánta / Selected Poems, with translations by the bilingual poet Michael Hartnett, established Ní Dhomhnaill's reputation outside Ireland, particularly in America, and her work has attracted translators such as Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin and Medbh McGuckian.

No other Irish-language poet has so successfully managed to bridge the gap between those who can approach her work directly and an international audience.
