Carl MacDougall has compiled an anthology that features the work of 50 writers, covering more than 800 years. Extracts from the great epic poems on Bruce and Wallace, the works of Gavin Douglas, Robert Henryson, and Sir David Lyndsay sit with anonymous ballad singers and unknown writers. Each piece carries a separate introduction and shows, through living, practical examples, how the language developed and survived and how its present is healthier than ever.
