dc.titleLanguage and Crisis in Contemporary Irish-language Poetrycs_CZ
uk.abstract.enModern poetry in Irish has been influenced by two major factors: the interrupted cultural heritage and the minoritized status of the language. With tightening global connections, the precarious situation of Irish has been considered alongside other minor and endangered languages, as well as the deteriorating climate. This article explores the temporal and spatial tensions that surround the language issue and climate emergency in contemporary poetic output in Irish. The main focus is on the poetry of Ailbhe Ní Ghearbhuigh and Aifric Mac Aodha who both express concerns about the future of their medium by way of reference to the existential threats of the Anthropocene. While as poets of globalized consciousness they are acutely aware of the urgency of these topics, their works also attest to how crisis and conflict is intrinsic to the language of poetry per se.cs_CZ
