Turas liteartha le Modern Ireland in 100 Artworks - A literary journey with Modern Ireland in 100 Artworks

Is é an t-ealaíontóir i gcónaí a bhíonn ag iarraidh an rud doráite a rá, a deir Fintan O'Toole, eagarthóir Modern Ireland in 100 Artworks (Acadamh Ríoga na hÉireann i gcomhar leis an Irish Times). Is leabhar é atá maisithe go haoibhinn agus a thugann spléachadh dúinn, tríd an ealaín is an litríocht, ar stair na hÉireann ó 1916 go dtí 2015. Léiriú ilmheánach é Siar agus Aniar ar na scríbhneoirí Gaeilge próis agus filíochta atá sa díolaim seo. Máirín Nic Eoin a bhí mar chomhairleoir Gaeilge agus a roghnaigh míreanna a bhaineann le tírdhreach, pobal agus cultúr Chorca Dhuibhne.

 'It is always artists who are trying to say the unsayable' states Fintan O'Toole, editor, in his introduction to Modern Ireland in 100 Artworks. This beautifully illustrated book - published by the Royal Irish Academy in association with the Irish Times – charts the history of Ireland from 1916 to 2015 through its art and literature. Siar agus Aniar is a multi-media performance of poetry and prose by influential Irish language writers featured in Modern Ireland in 100 Artworks. The book’s Irish language consultant Máirín Nic Eoin has selected texts that explore Irish language literature’s deep associations with the landscapes, people and culture of west Kerry. It will feature work by Tomás Ó Criomhthain, Máire Mhac an tSaoi, Seán Ó Ríordáin, Michael Davitt, and Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill – read by Dara Ó Cinnéide, Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh, Louis de Paor. Séamus Barra Ó Súilleabháin and Dairena Ní Chinnéide. The performance will feature music by Colm Ó Snodaigh and screen projections by Margaret Lonergan

Produced by IMRAM in partnership with the Royal Irish Academy. 

The printed book is available from the Academy's online bookshop.
