About the Book

This collection traces 100 years of Gaelic verse and includes both "high" and "low" poetry, children's verse and nonsense rhymes, as well as the serious, intellectual verse of the 1940s and 1950s. Each poem has a facing English translation, and the introduction sets the poems into their cultural and literary context. Poets include Domhnall Ruadh Choruna, Sorley Maclean and George Campbell Hay.
