The poems of Walter Kennedy by Walter Kennedy( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although Kennedy's surviving works are written in Middle Scots he may also have composed in Gaelic. In the Flyting, for instance, Dunbar makes big play of Kennedy's Carrick roots (albeit in the rankly insulting terms that are part of the genre) and strongly associates him with Erschry, which meant in other words the bardic tradition. By this time, the term Irish in Scotland signified Gaelic generally ... Only six works by Walter Kennedy are extant, including his contribution to the Flyting, but taken together these amount to a not insignificant 2443 lines of verse. Kennedy's longest poem is The Passioun of Crist, a courtly and successful depiction of the story of Christ from the nativity to the ascension and a significant yet neglected work altogether different in form, register and subject from the Flyting, his second longest work. There are four other works, all much shorter but still highly various in genre: An aigit man, twys fourty yeiris; At Matyne hour, in myddis of the nycht; Ane Ballat of Our Lady; Leif luve, my luve, na langar it lyk. Walter Kennedy was an acclaimed poet in his lifetime. Both Gavin Douglas and Sir David Lyndsay paid tribute to him as a fellow makar in their works."--Wikipedia, Nov. 2011
