Book Description Yale University Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 197 x 127 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Now available in paperback, the original English-language translation of O Cadhain s raucous masterpiece Mairtin O Cadhain s irresistible and infamous novel The Dirty Dust is consistently ranked as the most important prose work in modern Irish, yet no translation for English-language readers has ever before been published. Alan Titley s vigorous new translation, full of the brio and guts of O Cadhain s original, at last brings the pleasures of this great satiric novel to the far wider audience it deserves. In The Dirty Dust all characters lie dead in their graves. This, however, does not impair their banter or their appetite for news of aboveground happenings from the recently arrived. Told entirely in dialogue, O Cadhain s daring novel listens in on the gossip, rumors, backbiting, complaining, and obsessing of the local community. In the afterlife, it seems, the same old life goes on beneath the sod. Only nothing can be done about it-apart from talk. In this merciless yet comical portrayal of a closely bound community, O Cadhain remains keenly attuned to the absurdity of human behavior, the lilt of Irish gab, and the nasty, deceptive magic of human connection.

Book Description Yale University Press, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 190 x 117 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A brilliant new translation of O Cadhain s modern Irish literature masterpiece, meant to spark debate and comparison with Alan Titley s Dirty Dust, now with bonus materials on its history, reception, interpretations, adaptations, and more In critical opinion and popular polls, Mairtin O Cadhain s Graveyard Clay is invariably ranked the most important prose work in modern Irish. This bold new translation of his radically original Cre na Cille is the shared project of two fluent speakers of the Irish of O Cadhain s native region, Liam Mac Con Iomaire and Tim Robinson. They have achieved a lofty goal: to convey O Cadhain s meaning accurately and to meet his towering literary standards. Graveyard Clay is a novel of black humor, reminiscent of the work of Synge and Beckett. The story unfolds entirely in dialogue as the newly dead arrive in the graveyard, bringing news of recent local happenings to those already confined in their coffins. Avalanches of gossip, backbiting, flirting, feuds, and scandal-mongering ensue, while the absurdity of human nature becomes ever clearer. This edition of O Cadhain s masterpiece is enriched with footnotes, bibliography, publication and reception history, and other materials that invite further study and deeper enjoyment of his most engaging and challenging work.
