Reader's note

The purpose of this anthology is first and foremost to give pleasure. It has a secondary intention: to demonstrate the romantic richness of Scottish love poetry down the the present day.’ Antonia Fraser has been happily diverted from her historical research to prepare this anthology: in the course of her work on Mary, Queen of Scots and King James, she was struck by the wealth and passion of the sixteenth century Scottish love poetry, but she demonstrates here that romantic scotland is a reality which survived the passing of the centuries.
