"Duanaire na Sracaire is the first anthology to bring together Scotland's Gaelic poetry from the millennium c.600-1600 A.D., when Scotland shared its rich culture with Ireland.

The Glendale Bards : a selection of songs and poems by Niall MacLeòid (1843-1913),?The Bard of Skye', his brother Iain Dubh (1847-1901) and father Dòmhnall nan Òran (c.1787-1873) by Meg Bateman( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book marks the centenary of Neil MacLeod's death in 1913 with the republication of some of his work. It also publishes for the first time all of the identifiable work of his brother, Iain Dubh (1847?1901), and of their father, Dòmhnall nan Òran (c.1787?1873). Their contrasting styles mark a fascinating period of transition in literary tastes between the 18th and early 20th centuries at a time of profound social upheaval. Neil Macleod left Glendale in Skye to become a tea-merchant in Edinburgh. His songs were prized by his fellow Gaels for their sweetness of sentiment and melody, whic

The themes and images of classical Gaelic religious poetry by Meg Bateman( )

5 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thesis is an examination of all the published religious Gaelic poetry composed in syllablic metres. An analysis of its themes and images reveals the theological concepts of the poets and the mechanisms by which these were forged into a distinct genre of poetry. A legal metaphor forms the basis of the sociology of the poets. They held that mankind will only be redeemed by the Passion if Christ's claim for His blood-price can be met at Doom. This can only be achieved if Christ deems that mankind's debt to Him is cancelled out by the debt He owes to our kinswoman, the Virgin Mary, for having raised Him and suffered on His account. Both the ambivalence of the consequences of the Passion and the all-importance of kinship in our hopes for redemption are extensions of orthodox Catholic thinking. The corpus of poetry is remarkably homogeneous. Exceptions are the occasional and anti-clerical poems and those growing out of personal circumstance. By and large, difference in tone is seen to accord with difference in subject-matter, rather than with the feelings of the individual poet or with changes in influence over the period. Most poems contain several themes and several changes in tone, held together by a unifying metaphor. New poems are made by the reworking and rearranging of a limited scope of themes and images. The thesis, in the main, is concerned with relationships within the corpus of Classical material. However, references are also made where possible to the Gaelic poetry preceding the Classical period and to medieval thought in general. It is hoped that the thesis may be useful in doing further research aimed at placing the Classical Gaelic religious poetry in its European context
Early modern women poets, (1520-1700) : an anthology( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early Modern Women Poets represents a complete reexamination of the field, based on extensive archival research in manuscripts and early modern printed books. While it contains lavish selections from important poets such as Aphra Behn, Katherine Philips, and Aemilia Lanyer, almost half of the material included is previously unpublished and uncollected. It aims to introduce the reader to a conspectus of the verse written by women from c.1520 to 1700, at all social levels from the verse of court elite to working-class women's aphorisms, libels, and charms. Each woman's work is accompanied by a headnote which combines biographic information with some guidance as to the context, intended audience, and genre of her work."--Jacket
