A chairde,
I'm looking for dual language literature books: gaeilge on one page and the (english or other) translation on the opposite (facing page).

I bought one with short stories by P. Pearse some years ago edited by Mercier Press but have not found any others like it.

Do you know of other books like this, or similar translations of books within books, or other creative combinations of language within one object?

Le meas,
M.

There's FAVOURITE IRISH LEGENDS by Bairbre McCarthy, also edited by Mercier. It tells the stories of The Children of Lir, Balor Drochshúile and The Wooing of Etain. Aanother Mercier edition is IRISH PROVERBS IN ENGLISH AND IRISH BY Gabriel Rosenstock which puts the Irish version first and the back of the book is in English. Maybe Mercier would be the one to ask since all three books are theirs.

You might consider two dual language books in Irish folklore from Donegal, namely

  • Uair a Chloig Cois Teallaigh, Scéalta dá n-inse ag Pádraig Eoghin Phádraig Mac an Luain, Cruach Mhí an Fheannta, Dún na nGall, Séamus Ó Catháin a bhailaigh, a d'astrigh agus a chuir nótaí leo, Comhairle Bhéaloideas Éireann, An Coláiste Ollscoille, Baile Átha Cliath, ISBN 0-901120-91-X, 1985.

    An Hour by the Hearth, Stories told by Pádraig Eoghin Phádraig Mac an Luain, Crooveenananta, Co. Donegal, Collected, translated and edited by Séamus Ó Catháin, Comhairle Bhéaloideas Éireann, University College Dublin, ISBN 0-901120-91-X, 1985.

  • Seanchas Annie Bhán, Gordon Mac Gill-Fhinnein, Arna chur in eagar agus airthe ag Alan Harison agus Máiri Nic Gill-Fhinnein, The Seanchas Annie Bhán Publication Committee, ISBN 1-898473-84-6, 1997.

    The Lore of Annie Bhán, Gordon Mac Gill-Fhinnein, Edited and translated by Alan Harison and Máiri Nic Gill-Fhinnein, The Seanchas Annie Bhán Publication Committee, ISBN 1-898473-84-6, 1997.


The former comes with a tape but, alas, the later does not.
