Modern Scottish Gaelic Poems
Poetry by Donald MacAulay
Translated from the Gaelic by Donald MacAulay
With a contribution by Donald MacAulay
Although the number of Gaelic speakers has declined during the twentieth century, the last forty years have seen an astonishing flowering of Scottish Gaelic poetry, much of it in the modern idiom. This bilingual anthology provides a selection of the best work of poets who have contributed most to that revival––Sorely Maclean, George Campbell Hay, Derick Thomson, Iain Crichton Smith, and Donald MacAulay.
