Translated from Irish. Shortlisted for the 2009 Cornelis M Popescu Prize for European Poetry Translation, awarded by the Poetry Society of Great Britain and The Ratiu Foundation.

Shearsman published Trevor Joyce's Collected Poems, with the first dream of fire they hunt the cold, to great acclaim in 2001 (and a second edition of the book in 2003), and this volume extracts his remarkable translation of the epic Sweeny Peregrine from that volume and offers it together with a large group of other versions from Middle and Early-Modern Irish, thus offering Anglophone readers a glimpse of some very unusual verse that rarely sees the light of day outside academic volumes, while also transposing it into a form that will seem familiar to readers of Joyce's own work.
