Derek Mahon

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

Derek Mahon’s previous translation work includes plays by Sophocles, Euripides, Racine and Rostand; Words in the Air (Gallery Books, 1998), a selection of poems by Philippe Jaccottet; Birds (Gallery, 2002), a version of Oiseaux by Saint-John Perse, and Adaptations (Gallery, 2006), comprising a wide range of European poets ancient and modern.

These new adaptations include work based on Propertius, the principal T’ang poets, Rimbaud, Jorge Guillén and the fictitious ‘Gopal Singh’. Also represented here, in a striking new departure, are the Haitian poet Jean-F. Brière, and an African group translated from French.

Some of these versions are quite literal; others try only to ‘recreate the spirit’ of their originals.
