Notes: A series of verse translations, mainly from the "Legenda aurea"; ascribed to John Barbour, but this authorship is much disputed.
"Though without author's name [the work] is proved with reasonable certainty to be Barbour's by the similarity of its metre with that of the 'Brus.'"--Dict. of nat. biog.
"Positive evidence ... that [Barbour] was the author of the legends there is absolutely none. Of evidence that he was not their author there is an abundance."--Introd., v. 1, p. xxiv.
