Treasure Island in our own Language
Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson is one of the best known adventure novels ever written. This exciting and atmospheric story tells of treasure maps, mutiny, buccaneers, pirate gold, and of Jim Hawkins, a boy in his teens who puts to sea under the spell of the one-legged charming scoundrel Long John Silver.
That One-Legged Charming Scoundrel Long John Silver!
Oilean an Órchiste, a beautiful translation of Treasure Island for modern-day readers by Darach Ó Scolaí is accompanied by NC Wyeth’s renowned Illustrations from the 1911 edition.
‘Leabhar nua gleoite’ — An tUltach
As Rich and Fluent as Stevenson’s Original Story,
“This new version by Darach Ó Scolaí, with illustrations that recreate the design, the terror and the thrills of 19th century boys’ adventure books, is as rich and fluent as Stevenson’s original story, with the nautical expressions introduced and employed in a way that makes the attached glossory almost superfluous…. The reader is gripped by the tale from start to finish. Stevenson wrote an attractive adventure story for boys, and the great virtues of the original have been triumphantly brought to life in the Irish of artist and writer Darach Ó Scolaí.” —Iarla Mac Aodha Bhuí, INIS Magazine
“Now I know why it’s a classic … A wonderful achievement.” — Ciara Ní Éanacháin, Cúla4 TG4
