A selection of some fifty of Dunbar’s poems, with introduction, notes, glossary, and six pages of “appreciations” ranging from John Pinkerton’s (1786) to C.S. Lewis (1954). The notes to this edition gave a great deal of historical and linguistic information as well as much critical interpretation of individual poems.
James Kinsley was formerly Professor of English Studies at the University of Nottingham
An excellent selection of some fifty of Dunbar’s poems, with introduction, notes, glossary... An admirable volume that deserves to be widely used.
