Twa tongues / dà theanga: Rab Wilson & Rody Gorman
Sat 22 October 2016, 18:15 – 19:15 BST
Zero Hours, the latest offering from Rab Wilson, covers manifold subjects, themes and ideas over a wide array of poems from sublime to ridiculous. No other contemporary poet writes quite like Rab Wilson — this new collection underscores his unique view of Scotland and audaciously sets out his poetic manifesto for our country’s future. Rody Gorman was born in Dublin in 1960 and now lives on the Isle of Skye where he writes in, and translates between, Irish and Scottish Gaelic. Fascinated by the interplay between language and the possibilities translation offers, Rody’s current project Suibhne: An Intertonguing plays with English, Irish and Scots Gaelic to exhilarating effect.
