Sweeney, Matthew oldala, Angol életrajz

Sweeney, Matthew portréja
Sweeney, Matthew


Born in Donegal in 1952, based in Cork currently, having previously been resident in Berlin, Timişoara and, for a long time, London. Sweeney stands apart from the usual line of discussion by combining an inherited Irish interest in narrative with a lasting preoccupation with German literature, stretching from the Romantics to the twentieth century and including Kleist, Buchner, Trakl, Kafka, Huchel, Grass and Boll. Furthermore, his work seems barely touched by the mainstream of English writing - witness firstly his lack of interest in history or class and secondly his highly individual adaptation of realism. Bilingual selections of the poems appeared in Germany and Holland in 2008. There were earlier translations in Mexico, Romania, Latvia and Slovakia. In 1994/95 he was Writer in Residence at the South Bank, London. He has been a recipient of the DAAD Fellowship in Berlin. A member of Aosdána (Irish Writers Online is a no-frills bio-bibliographical database), he lived in Europe for many years and now lives in Cork.

- The Night Post: A New Selection, Salt (2010)
