George Campbell Hay (Deorsa Mac Iain Dheorsa) by George Campbell Hay

Book Description

George Campbell Hay (Deorsa Mac Iain Dheorsa) has been hailed as an important voice in Scottish literature and as a crucial figure in the renaissance of Gaelic poetry in the twentieth century. Yet with his collections long out of print, only a small proportion of his work has been available to the public. This book gathers together for the first time George Campbell Hay's complete original poems, in Gaelic, Scots, English, French, Italian and Norwegian. Volume I presents all of the poems chronologically, with accompanying English translations. Volume II provides annotations to each poem, including a full list of sources; a detailed biography, heavily reliant on Hay's own correspondence, which sheds new light on the social, political and literary context of his work; an outline of Hay's main poetic concerns, in theme and in form; and some of Hay's own musical settings. The publication of this long-awaited scholarly edition is a landmark in Scottish and Gaelic publishing. The volumes represent a notable addition to the canon of twentieth-century Scottish literature and should permit a full evaluation of Hay's significance. Published as a two-volume set in a deluxe edition in association with the Lorimer Memorial Trust.
