Seán Ó 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 Dánta/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 Ó Tuama and Peter Denman.
