Abstract:

"The New Penguin Book of Scottish Verse is the first anthology ever to offer a view over the entire history of Scottish poetry, extending from the sixth to the end of the twentieth century, and representing each of its stylistic currents with clarity and verve." "Readers will find here the cornerstones of a poetic tradition which predates the Scottish nation. There are selections from the medieval makars Robert Henryson and William Dunbar, and a representation of the remarkable folk literature known as the Border Ballads. The work of acknowledged masters such as Robert Burns and Robert Louis Stevenson, and, in the twentieth century, Hugh MacDiarmid, Sorley MacLean and Norman MacCaig, is augmented by that of neglected and unknown writers. The book concludes with selections from Scotland's contemporary poets, including Douglas Dunn, Kathleen Jamie and Don Paterson." "Throughout the volume, poetry in Gaelic, Latin and other languages is given in parallel text; poems in Scots are fully glossed."--BOOK JACKET.
