Henry Street Arcade
by Peter O'Neill & Yan Kouton

Henry Street Arcade is a bilingual collection of poetry by Peter O’Neill, translated into French by the French poet Yan Kouton. It is inspired by a historic shopping arcade in the heart of Dublin city center and evokes for the author the ideas of Walter Benjamin and the poetry of Charles Baudelaire. Henry Street was also the Street where James Joyce was to help bring the first cinema to the Irish public over 100 years ago. So, it is this triad of authors- Joyce, Benjamin and Baudelaire which animate the collection.
