by Paddy Bushe


2 in stock


Genre:Irish Interest / Irish Poetry & Drama



Described by Bernard O’Donoghue as “the leading poet writing in both Irish and English”, Paddy Bushe is a committed, engaged and highly accomplished writer in Ireland’s two official languages. He is also a much admired translator from the Irish. Following on from To Ring in Silence, his new and selected poems, published in 2008, Second Sight draws attention to his considerable achievement in Irish, presenting in a dual-language format the poet’s own selection from three previous books – In Ainneoin na gCloch, Gile na Gile and Moinear an Chroi, all published by Coisceim – accompanied by his own English language translations. Second Sight is published simultaneously with Peripheral Vision, his new collection in English; together they offer a comprehensive and timely overview of the work of one of the most significant of contemporary Irish poets.
