Translations of poems into Irish by Gabriel Rosenstock
Brilliant poems from Yeats, Heaney and Beckett have been selected to take the audience on a journey through life: from youth to courtship, marriage, having children, then on into old age and beyond.
Some of the poems in Everlasting Voices will be premiered, having been translated into Irish for the very first time by Gabriel Rosenstock.
Gabriel Rosenstock is a poet, haikuist and author/translator of over 170 books, mostly in Irish. Among the anthologies in which he is represented is Best European Fiction 2012 (Dalkey Archive Press, USA) and Haiku in English: The First Hundred Years (W.W. Norton & Company, Inc., 2013).
