Máire Mhac an sSaoi is the greatest living Irish language poet. The first ever translations of her work into english, overseen by Louis de Paor, who has also written a comprehensive introduction, make this beautiful book an unmissable event for all lovers of the Irish language.

Probably the leading Irish language poet of the twentieth century, Máire has published many highly acclaimed volumes of verse, articles, short stories and translations.

LOUIS DE PAOR is one of the most celebrated poets of the Irish language. A former editor of the acclaimed Irish language journal Innti (founded by Michael Davitt, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Liam Ó Muirthile and Gabriel Rosenstock), he is now the Director of the Centre for Irish Studies at the National University of Ireland, Galway. De Paor has worked alongside many of the giants of literature in the Irish language such as Sean Ó Tuama with whom he edited a twentieth century anthology of poetry in Irish.

'this selection will open her work to a much wider English-language audience and will undoubtedly add to her growing band of admirers'

Irish Independent

'the unusual design of the book, based on decorations by Emma Byrne, is pleasantly cohesive and simple'
