Wilson McLeod (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that the vision of the connection between Ireland and Scotland in bardic poetry is a hazy one, whose outlines are less than sharp or clear. Much of what is said is only half-said, and often not as careful implication or subtle statement, but as offhand comment or haphazard suggestion. Attitudes, perceptions, and outlooks are difficult to discern, almost impossible to set out with certainty or finality.

Keywords:   panegyric bardic poetry, Gaelic Scotland, Gaelic Ireland
