This book, edited by Dr Emma Dymock and Dr Wilson McLeod, originates in a conference held in the department of Celtic and Scottish Studies at the University of Edinburgh in April 2009 on the subject of Gaelic literature in the 20th and 21st centuries. Half the essays in the volume were originally presented at that conference, and the other half were invited from other leading scholars in the field.
'Lainnir aâ€™ Bhuirn â€“ The Gleaming Water fills a spot within Gaelic literary criticism that has for all too long been left empty. In its commendable attempt to highlight some of the many neglected contemporary aspects of Scottish Gaelic literature this collection is sure to become an inspiration to many Gaelic scholars for years to come.'
