Penguin Book Of Scottish Verse

Book Penguin Verse
Penguin Book Of Scottish Verse

Extending from the 6th century to the end of the 20th, and representing each of its stylistic currents with clarity and verve, The Penguin Book of Scottish Verse is an unprecedented collection. 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.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
