Beth à Aimeireaga bho thùs, is tha na dàin aice a’ siubhail thar chuantan, a’ toirt

Bho coilltean Shasainn
Nuaidh gu teanamantan Ghlaschu, tha bàrdachd Beth ceangailte ris an dachaigh, a
bhith na màthair, agus a sireadh àite ris a bheil i a’ buntainn. Tha i gar toirt air turas tro phoiliteags,
cànain is tìr leis an leabhran dà-chànanach seo.
Tha Beth na bàrd,
cleasaiche, is na màthair. Chaidh a togail anns na Stàitean Aonaichte agus rinn
i imrich a dh’Alba ann an 2008, far an do dh’ionnsaich i Gàidhlig. Tha i a’ sgrìobhadh anns a’ Ghàidhlig is sa Bheurla a-nis, agus
choisin i Duais nan Sgrìobhadairean Ùra bho Urras Leabhraichean na h-Alba, ann an co-bhann le Comhairle nan
Leabhraichean, ann an 2021 airson a cuid bhàrdachd Gàidhlig.
In Acair san talamh / Anchor in the land, Beth Frieden’s
debut pamphlet of poems moves back and forth across the Atlantic to explore
family and nature with humour and curiosity. Written in Scottish Gaelic
and English by an American immigrant to Scotland, these are poems that thrill
in the wild and the intimate.
the forests of New England to the tenements of Glasgow, these are intensely
felt and finely honed poems of adventure, motherhood, dislocation and
relocation; alive to the personal, political and linguistic questions that our
homes ask of us.
Frieden is a poet and an actress, and a mother. She grew up in the US and moved
to Scotland in 2008, where she learned Gaelic. She writes in both English and
Gaelic now, and received a New Scottish Writers Award in 2021 from the Scottish
Book Trust, in association with the Gaelic Books Council.
'S e tachartas dà-chànanach a bhios seo, le leughaidhean sa
Ghàidhlig agus sa Bheurla.
