The Canna Lecture 2016

Professor Meek’s Canna Lecture represents a further valuable contribution to the study of Gaelic literature, this time turning the focus on the eighteenth century and the work of one of its major literary figures, Perthshire poet Dugald Buchanan. Professor Meek’s interest in Buchanan dates back to his student days, an interest which remained with him and which culminated in SGTS’s 2015 volume Laoidhean Spioradail Dhùghaill Bhochanain, the first authoritative and scholarly edition of the poet’s work. This lecture focussed on manuscript sources for Buchanan’s poetry and thus further enriches our understanding of the poet, his world and his work. This book is in English.
