Languages and Literature

TitleLanguages and Literature
DescriptionThe University of Edinburgh's strengths in languages and literature are represented in collections featuring literary icons such as Walter Scott and W.H. Auden, publishing giants like Thomas Nelson, and significant University personages such as Professor John Stuart Blackie. The papers of Scottish Literary Renaissance figures, including Hugh MacDiarmid, George Mackay Brown and Helen Cruikshank, intersect with politics and cultural studies. Linguistics, ethnology and anthropology are reflected in substantial Celtic and Scottish Gaelic collections, including the papers of folklorist Alexander Carmichael, and wax cylinder recordings of Gaelic song and lore recorded by Marjory Kennedy-Fraser.
