Being interested in Gaelic literature, and wanting particularly to find out about eighteenth century poetry in the language, I felt that here was a book that would feature a wide variety of Gaelic poets and their poems. A marvellous opportunity to increase my knowledge of Gaelic poetry of the eighteenth century and of the tongue itself. My Gaelic isn't brilliant at the moment and I don't have a very wide knowledge of the literature but I'm sure that this book will help in my improvement. It was a must, buying this book; it certainly covers a wide range of poetry and gives a great deal of information about the poets themselves. I'd recommend this book for anyone interested in eighteenth century Gaelic poetry.
