An Tuil

An Anthology of 20th Century Scottish Gaelic Verse

An Tuil is a unique bilingual anthology providing a much-needed and impressive overview of the high achievement and dramatic development of Gaelic verse in the twentieth century. One hundred Gaelic poets of the century are represented through over 350 poems, including the work of D?mhnall Ruadh Chor?na, Donald Macintyre, Sorley MacLean, George Campbell Hay, Derick Thomson, Iain Crichton Smith and Donald John MacDonald. The poetry deals with a range of subjects: comedy and satire, love and war, religion and politics. The chronological listing by poet, and extensive and detailed biographies, amount to a study of the Gaelic experience of the twentieth century.

Complete with an informative introduction, this definitive anthology presents the Gaelic view of the twentieth century and offers a literary perspective radically different from existing collections.
