New translation of Seamus Heaneys poems: 'District en Circle'

District en Circle - Seamus Heaney (vert. Onno Kosters)
 

A new translation in Dutch has been published of District and Circle (2006), the collection of poems by the Irish poet and Nobel Prize winner Seamus Heaney. This time the poems have been translated by Dr Onno Kosters (Department of Modern Languages, English) and Han van der Vegt, after a previous translation by Hanz Mirck had been criticised so sharply in 2010 that it was withdrawn from the market.
