Synopsis: This book is intended both as a tribute and as a critical estimate, of interest both to the professional scholar and to the general reader. It has been a primary purpose of this book to make MacLean's writing more accessible to the non-Gael. In its critical function, the volume will hopefully serve to demonstrate why he is to be regarded as a major poet. The book takes the form of a collection of specially commissioned essays, whose authors' talents are collectively well suited to cover the range of MacLean's life and work in a comprehensive manner. The essays hence deal not only with the major facets of his poetry, but examine also his work in other fields: his contribution to modern Iiterary criticism; his agitation for a better deal for Gaelic in Scottish education; his rich family background, steeped in the best of oral and written Gaelic culture; his very fertile influence on other poets. The book contains also a biographical essay and an essay from James B. Caird, a close friend and one of his own generation, on the man himself. For reasons of space it was not possible to include essays in Gaelic. Quotations from the poetry, however, are given throughout in both Gaelic and English, the translations being the poet's own unless otherwise stated. Sorley MacLean (Scottish Gaelic: Somhairle MacGill-Eain, sometimes "MacGilleathain" in earlier publications) (26 October 1911 - 24 November 1996) was one of the most significant Scottish poets of the 20th century.
