Scottish Poetic Heritage

By David Wilson

Poetry, Education & teaching | Paperback, eBook


"Scottish Poetic Heritage" includes 52 poems from 27 of the old Scottish poets which I am sure will appeal to most readers. Scotland has a very rich heritage in poetry and I have written this book to keep the memory of the old poets alive and to try to inspire others to write. Robert Burns is still regarded as Scotland's National Poet. Many of these poets were well educated but James Hogg was one of the exceptions. James Hogg, also known as "The Ettrick Shepherd" had to leave school early because of family financial problems and became a shepherd for a number of years. He was aged forty before he moved to Edinburgh to start a literary career. The New Year favourite "Old Lang Syne" is included as well as one of my own. It will be a great shame if these talented writers are forgotten and their works no longer read.



I live in the North of Scotland with my wife, Tess, amongst beautiful scenery which gives me inspiration to write. Deer and rabbits are frequently in the garden and buzzards sit on the fence posts waiting for their prey. My hobbies include poetry, fishing the small hill lochs, photography, landscape painting and walking between the hills in this beautiful landscape. I have written four books about the First World War, composed a book of the old Scottish poets and I am at present writing short fictional humorous stories.
