Sir David Lyndsay selected poems

Association for Scottish Literary Studies, 2000 - Poetry - 348 pages
In the late 16th18th centuries, a literate Scottish household was likely to own two books: the Bible and the poems of Sir David Lyndsay. This collection is both an accessible introduction to new readers, for whom there are on-the-page annotations and references, and a valuable resource for specialists, who will appreciate the freshly-established texts. The supplemental notes illustrate the richness of Lyndsay's language and explain numerous references of the time, while an introduction provides biographical information and discusses important features of Lyndsay's poetry.
