Abstract

With 75 texts spanning three centuries (25 texts in each tongue: poems, prose extracts and songs), this anthology introduces the general reader to writing in the three minority tongues that coexist with the English language across the North Channel, in Scotland andthe nine counties of Ulster. Each text is accompanied by a visual image, a biographical note and a translation into English, making each two-page spread an elegant but succinct introduction to each author whose work is featured. The anthology also comprises three introductions (one for each language, with translation), an index of authors, a list of illustrations, and suggestions for further reading – making this also an ideal educational resource.
