    Description

    'Leabhar Mor na Gaidhlig' / 'The Great Book Of Gaelic' brings together more than 150 poets, visual artists, calligraphers and typographers from Ireland and Scotland. New poetry and visual artwork was commissioned to form the 'Great Book' - a single bound volume, which is a major contemporary artwork in the form of visual anthology.

    The hundred Gaelic poems that make up the 'Leabhar Mor' were selected by thirty leading Gaelic poets from both countries who nominated one of their own works plus another seventy from the canon of Gaelic poetry. The selection features work from every century between the sixth and twenty-first, and includes the earliest Gaelic poetry in existence. Comedy, tragedy, love, death, the spiritual and the bawdy are all represented.

    Through 'The Great Book Of Gaelic', the Gaelic community has created another great work of art that renews the connection between Gaelic Scotland and Ireland and celebrates the diverse strands of contemporary Celtic culture.
