Gaelic and Italian Poetry With Christopher Whyte

About Gaelic and Italian Poetry With Christopher Whyte

Join Christopher Whyte in the Gaelic bookshop to celebrate the publication of his new poetry collection Non dimenticare gli angeli (Don’t Forget the Angels), an anthology of 30 years of Gaelic poems with facing-page translations into Italian. The translations won the Premio Rilke 2023 and it is first time ever an entire book in Scottish Gaelic has been published in Italy. It therefore marks an important milestone in getting readers on the continent acquainted with contemporary Scottish writing.

Christopher Whyte will be in conversation with Niall O'Gallagher, the 2023 Crowned Bard of An Comunn Gàidhealach.

Christopher Whyte is a Gaelic poet with many accolades. After a distinguished academic career teaching Scottish and Gaelic literature in Rome, Edinburgh and Glasgow, he moved to Budapest, Hungary in 2006, where he writes full-time. His work is characterised by its innovative, at times provocative, subject-matter, and by the resolute adoption of a European perspective.

This event will be in Gaelic, Italian and English. All welcome.
