Scottish Gaelic literature
Found in 83 Collections and/or Records:
A script for a lecture, or draft for an article, concerning the the patterns and metres in Gaelic verse, with some special reference to the Gaelic singing tradition.
Story probably collected from Donald MacColl, foxhunter, Glencreran, Earra Ghàidheal/Argyllshire, about Stewart of Fasnacloich, father of Captain [in 1883] that he had to 'sing a woman' to help with the reaping but they reaped so much more as a result.
A script for a lecture, presumably for students of Celtic at the University of Edinburgh in 1912. The subject of the lecture appears to be about idiomatic expressions in Gaelic, rather than the book in the Old Testament.
The script or notes for a lecture on the Gaelic text of Macpherson's 'Ossian'
This is a transcription of the Gaelic version of the Latin poem by Statius, 'Thebaid'. The manuscript NLS.72.1.8,ff-28 is held at the National Library of Scotland. It is suggested on page 195 that this manuscript is based on an old French translation of the original Latin text.
Script or notes for what appears to be a public lecture, titled 'the Melancholy of the Gael'. This appears to be about the tone of Gaelic literature, rather than about the cultural traits of Highlanders.
There is another copy of this lecture in this collection (B8), which appears to have more notes, and less scripted prose.
This notebook is largely blank, but there are some notes for, or an outline of, a lecture on the 'Melancholy of the Gael'. It appears to be a lecture for students studying Celtic at the University of Edinburgh. It seems to be based on a lecture, held the following year (the script for which is also in this collection: B7), focusing on the tone of Gaelic literature, rather than on cultural traits of Highlanders.
