Though it is widely regarded as his greatest achievement, Sorley MacLean's cycle of love lyrics Dain do Eimhir (Poems to Eimhir) was only published in part during his lifetime. Drawing on manuscript and published sources, this edition brings together all but one of the poems, including six which have never before appeared in print. With facing English translations throughout, an authoritative introduction and extensive commentaries on all fifty-nine poems detailing cultural, historical and political references, it makes a major masterpiece of 20th century Scottish literature fully available to the general public for the first time. This new edition of Sorley MacLean's finest work will draw extensive media attention and will be keenly sought after.
