Forked Tongues

Forked Tongue

Galician, Basque, and Catalan Women’s Poetry in Translations by Irish Writers

‘The trope of the forked tongue hovers over this bilingual collection of poetry. It is intended to suggest the relationship between the source and the target languages — between the vernacular tongues of Galicia, the Basque country and Catalonia, on the one hand and English as a lingua franca on the other. But the notion of the forked tongue arises also of the bilingual condition both of the writers and the communities involved in this anthology. Galicia, the Basque country and Catalonia each have two official languages, and so has Ireland…’
