Bloomsday - Dedalus Irish Poets

Bloomsday - Dedalus Irish Poets

A bilingual poetry reading by Pat Boran, Katherine Duffy, Mary Montague and Gerry Murphy, and their French translators.

To celebrate Bloomsday 2011, the appropriately named Dedalus Press presents a bilingual event of short readings by four mid-career Irish poets, together with their French translators, offering a unique and timely insight into the richness and diversity of contemporary poetry from Ireland.

To mark the event, Dedalus will publish a bilingual commemorative anthology, introduced by Clíona Ní Ríordáin and Paul Bensimon, and featuring selections from the work of each of the participating poets.

Celebrate Bloomsday with a glass of wine and a selection of Irish cheeses, courtesy of An Bord Bia.
