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

Duncane Laideus testament and other comic poems in older Scots( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume contains eleven Scottish examples of particular kinds of humorous writing--comic, parodic, and satiric--of the late fifteenth and sixteenth centuries. Previously unavailable in modern scholarly editions, these works are freshly established from diverse sources, including the manuscript that is the earliest extant of John Knox's 'Historie of the Reformatioun of Religioun'. A manuscript owned by the Campbell of Glenorchy family is the source of the volume's most substantial work, Duncane Laideus Testament; the poem's bicultural outlook provides an important reference point for historians, as well as scholars of early Scottish and Gaelic literature. Other texts include David Lyndsay's The Complaint of Bagsche and the anonymous 'My gudame wes a gay wif'. To assist study of the development of early Scottish writing, and to chart historical, especially religious, change, the poems are arranged in their probable order of composition. Each is introduced separately, with consideration of witnesses; evidence for date of composition and authorship; title, metre, and genre; and full apparatus. Explanatory notes examine matters of interest or potential difficulty, including the sense of contemporary expressions, wordplay, legal and Latin terms, and debts to earlier writers.The volume also includes a full Bibliography, Glossary, and Index of Names and Places"--Provided by publisher's website
