Sean O Tuama has spent a lifetime conducting a love affair with and through the Irish language. As a teacher he provided a critical basis for the younger generation of writers in Irish; as a poet and dramatist he set himself the task of achieving what he describes as the 'transformational power' which is part of any work of literary merit. Rogha Danta/Death in the Land of Youth, is a collection of poems that combine ferocity and love; aggression and heroism, death and the ties of family and friendship. Presented as parallel translations the poems originally written in Irish are made accessible to a wider readership with the English versions written by O Tuama and Peter Denman.
