500 years of the Erotic in Gaelic Verse. 

Winner of the Donald Meek Award 2016, this collection of bawdy, erotic and transgressive Gaelic song and verse mines a long tradition back to the age of Ossian.  ‘… Much works by innuendo rather than explicit detail … to balance the more risqué material we include some relatively gentle love poems.’ With Peter Mackay.

Peter Mackay is from Lewis. He is a lecturer at the University of St Andrews and is the author of Gu Leòr / Galore, From Another Island and Sorley MacLean.  He is one of ten BBC Radio 3 New Generation Thinkers.

This event can be purchased separately for £6/£5, but is also included in the CÀNAN AODAINN: LANGUAGE OF EDEN package (3 events – 1 ticket – £10).
