Description

CLÀR, 2014. 480 pages. Paperback.

One of the 20th Century’s finest - yet relatively unknown - Gaelic authors, Donald Sinclair, died tragically young at the age of 46 in 1932. After leaving his native Barra around the age of 18, he worked in Edinburgh, London and Manchester.  Donald Sinclair was an outspoken, fierce champion of the Gaelic language.  His work, highly regarded by contemporaries Sorley MacLean and Hugh MacDiarmid, encompassed a variety of styles and subjects and  it can be argued he broke new ground for Gaelic writing.

Included in this publication – the first time his work has been brought together in the one volume - are previously  unpublished songs still alive in Barra, as well as his other published songs, poetry, plays, prose fiction, essays, reviews and translations. With a foreword  by Lisa Storey and an introduction from scholar Angus MacLeod, D.M.N.C. has remained one of Gaelic’s best kept secrets.
