    Abstract

    Three twentieth-century Irish writers have chosen to translate Rimbaud’s “Bateau ivre”: Samuel Beckett in the 1930s, Derek Mahon in the 1980s and Ciaran Carson in the 1990s. The first question that springs to mind is, why should these three choose a text that has as its subject exile and the weary longing to return?
