Show synopsis Marin Sorescu had a great fondness for Ireland and visited there often, and Irish poets made many translations of his work. In a recent Blood-axe anthology of Rumanian poetry, When the Tunnels Meet, edited by John Fairleigh, the versions of his poems are by Paul Muldoon. He was also generous in his support of young poets. While he was in Belfast in 1991 for the opening of an exhibition of his paintings, a group of young Irish poets honored him by reading a selection of his poems. His response was to arrange for this collection of ten young Irish poets rendering ten young Romanian poets: Ruth Carr-Amelia Calujnai; Andrew Elliott-Ion Munteanu; John Hughes-Grigore Balanescu; John Kelly-Nicolae Diaconu; Peter McDonald-Doina Pologea; Martin Mooney-Ion Hirghidus; Philip Orr-Constantin Preda; Patrick Ramsey-Florea Miu; Janet Shepperson-Carmen Firan; and Kevin Smith-Patrel Berceanu.
