Introduced by Donald MacAulay. This indispensable anthology contains selections of the best work by Scotland's most acclaimed modern Gaelic poets: Sorley Maclean, George Campbell Hay, Iain Crichton Smith, Derick Thomson and Donald MacAulay. Designed as much for English readers of Gaelic, the poems are presented with line-for-line translations. These translations have been made by the poets themselves, thereby maximising the retention of the sprit and form of the originals. Donald MacAulay is Professor of Celtic at the University of Glasgow. 'This is the ideal collection for those who wish to enjoy Gaelic poetry without learning the language.' Birmingham Post 'This book deserves to be read not only to gain an insight into modern Gaelic poetry, but because it contains poetry of merit that is now available in English.' Press and Journal 'Nua-Bhardachd Ghaidhlig breathes the very soul of Gaelic Scotland. It is an anthology of the first importance.' Books Ireland
