Quote of the Day
Your list has always been interesting, idiosyncratic, imaginative and your translations [...] have been a source of pleasure to me.

  • About
  • Christopher Whyte is probably the greatest living expert on MacLean’s poetry. His annotated editions of the Dàin do Eimhir and An Cuilithionn 1939 contained a significant quantity of hitherto unpublished material and have been met with acclaim. He is himself a Gaelic poet of substance whose fifth collection, An Daolag Shìonach, is due to appear in 2012. Author of four novels in English, he taught from 1990 to 2005 at the Department of Scottish Literature in Glasgow University. He now lives and writes full-time in Budapest.
