Rate this:
The New Penguin Book Of Scottish Verse is the first anthology ever to offer a view over the entire history of Scottish history, extending from the 6th century to the end of the 20th, and representing each of its stylistic currents with clarity and verve. Acknowledged masters such as Robert Burns and Don Paterson are well represented, their work augmented by that of neglected and unknown writers.

Throughout the volume, poetry in Gaelic, Latin and other languages is given in parallel text; poems in Scots are fully glossed. With its comprehensive, lively Introduction, this unique anthology - mingling Highland and Lowland, the religious and the profane, poems by kings and crofters - is the definitive guide to the whole poetry of Scotland.
