Poems in Irish by Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill. Translated by Paul Muldoon
‘These exuberant poems filter a modern suburban existence through the beguiling miasma of a more ancient Ireland . . . What Muldoon calls in one poem ‘the monsters of the imagination, the demons of the air’ dart through the book like sly witches on a wild night.
— Conor Kelly, The Sunday Tribune
‘The two poets are at their best, making The Astrakhan Cloak a landmark in Irish literature’
— Frank Sewell, Fortnight
This collaboration between Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill and Paul Muldoon reveals an astonishing connection between two extraordinary talents.
