From Elsewhere is the latest reach into another source by the ingenious translator of The Inferno of Dante Alighieri, The Táin, The Midnight Court and poems by Mallarmé, Baudelaire and, most recently, Rimbaud. From what he calls Follain’s ‘humble, resonant and mysterious’ poems, Ciaran Carson, one of the outstanding poets of our time, fetches glories from the ‘elsewhere’ of another territory and another language. The outcome is brilliantly original in every sense.
