A, C. (1900). Carmina Gadelica, Volume II. Retrieved from

Description: This is volume II of Alexander Carmichael's collection of folk poetry from the Western Isles of Scotland. Volume II includes many incantations for luck, love and good health. This volume also has numerous poems about plants and animals, and extensive notes on the lore associated with them. Besides the complete English and Gaelic text of the poems, and the beautiful initials, this etext includes the extensive glossary, which occupies the last third of the book. This appendix has not been reprinted in any of the contemporary anthologies of the Carmina Gadelica, and appears for the first time on the Internet at this site. It is a treasure trove of Scottish and Celtic lore, and makes fascinating reading. The glossary includes crucial background information about the main text of the book, many shorter poems, and Carmichael's personal insights into the life and beliefs of the people he studied for many years.
