Sebastian Barry, Anne Enright and Hugo Hamilton – Translating Ireland

Date: Fri 23rd May at 8pm     Venue: The Printworks (Dublin Castle)     Price: €12 / €10

‘Translating Ireland’ brings together three leading Irish novelists to share their experiences of being translated, read excerpts from their work, and to talk about the translations that have most inspired them.

In novels like A Long, Long Way, Sebastian Barry has shone a light into the dark corners of Irish life, focusing on the ordinary people whose lives are neglected, forgotten or written out of history.

Booker Prize-winner Anne Enright is celebrated for her capacity to explore serious issues with compassion and wry humour in works like The Forgotten Waltz.

Hugo Hamilton is the bestselling author of seven novels and two memoirs, including The Speckled People, a memoir of his German-Irish childhood that won a clutch of European awards.

    Just started Barry’s “The Temporary Gentleman.” The first chapter blew me away, and it’s hard to imagine how it could be translated. Wish I could go to this event!
