about

This book offers an integrated reading of the poems and translations published by five prominent Northern Irish poets - Heaney, Derek Mahon, Michael Longley, Paul Muldoon and Ciaran Carson - demonstrating that their 'original' writing and their versions of other authors are manifestations of their particular and consistently pursued poetics.
RUI CARVALHO HOMEM is Professor of English at the University of Porto, Portugal.
