Sorley Maclean, Gaelic and Edinburgh
Sorley Maclean, the greatest Gaelic poet of the twentieth century, has a deep relationship with Edinburgh. He was a student in the city, and then a teacher, and it was in the city that

he wrote some of his most important poetry. However, for Maclean it was ‘baile glas gun ghathadh grèine’ - a grey town with no rays of sunlight. This paper will look at the ambiguous relationship between Maclean, and Gaelic poetry more broadly, and this 'grey' city...
Dr Peter Mackay is a Lecturer in Literature in the School of English at the University of St Andrews. He is the author of Sorley Maclean (RIISS 2011).
