Description (in English): 

Oisleánd is a hypertext work using mesostic techniques to combine two translations of one text. The "performance text" is generated by taking each letter in either the Irish poem "Oileán" or its English interpretation "Island", and substituting it with a full word from the other version (containing that letter). Thus, a new poem - either "English in Irish" or "Irish in English" is built, to use the author's words.

Technical notes: 

Requires OS 8.x+ and HyperCard Player.
