Though Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill was born in the UK, she was sent to live with her aunt in Ireland at age five. Now considered one of the country's leading poets writing all in Irish, she has won numerous awards for her books of poetry and essays, with her works translated into English by the likes of The New Yorker's Paul Muldoon. She reads from her poetry books The Fifty Minute Mermaid and The Water Horse and shares a piece from her Selected Essays as well as talks about her fight to gain recognition in her early career and the influence of Irish lore and landscape on her writing.
