CLR Book Club – Week 3 September 13, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Okay, we’re moving slowly towards it. How about we vote on a title?

I’m guessing that the ‘x y Memorial Book Club’ is too grandiose ūüėČ

I found the Eley book online here https://uniteyouthdublin.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/forging-democracy-the-history-of-the-left-in-europe-1850-2000.pdf (which incidentally suggests that others are reading it at the mo). It’s been years since I’ve read anything by him but this https://viewpointmag.com/2014/06/27/no-need-to-choose-history-from-above-history-from-below/ gives a flavour.

I’d go for a chapter by chapter weekly reading of that with online discussion. It would be great to hear other people’s points of view / input.

as long as book/chapter to discuss is available online with no probs downloading for participants – OK.

Pity we’ll be missing out on the smokes, drinks and snacks of a convivial get-together

The Horizontalist WhateverYou’reHavingYourself Book Club

So, vote on a title, I’m sure you mean a title of the first book. I vote Cr√© na Cille by M√°irt√≠n √ď Cadhain. Two recent competing English translations available.
√ď Cadhain was of course, among other things, active in the Republican Movement and the WP club in Gardiner Place was named in his honour, Club U√≠ Chadhain. So he qualifies.

I’d go for that as well, Joe. I still haven’t read it in English.

And with someone to point out the inadequacies of translation it would be not so dusty.

13 yoyos in paperback.

Cré na Cille Рbi lingual Book Club Рan smaoineamh go deo Joe.

I think the TIm Robinson/Liam Mac an Iomaire translation is the more literal whereas Alan Titley, a virtuoso of Irish language literature in his own right, takes a more free wheeling approach
