Dàin do Eimhir / Poems to Eimhir
by Sorley MacLean
‘One of the very greatest of Gaelic poets…and one of the great love poets of the world’ – Iain Crichton Smith
Although it is widely regarded as his finest work, Sorley MacLean’s sequence of love lyrics, Dain do Eimhir (Poems to Eimhir), was only published in part during his lifetime. Drawing on manuscript and published sources, this reissue of the acclaimed Association for Scottish Literary Studies 2002 edition brings together all but one of the poems. English translations throughout, an authoritative introduction and an extensive commentary detailing cultural, historical and political references make this major masterpiece of twentieth-century Gaelic poetry fully accessible to the general public.
