Ulster-Scots Poetry Project

Book Collection

The following titles constitute a major selection of the poetry books of the 19th and early 20th centuries from the province of Ulster that contain a significant amount of Ulster-Scots linguistic features , and also which contain a number of literary genres, themes and motifs that derive from the Lowland Scots vernacular tradition. This selection demonstrates that far from being an isolated or relatively infrequent occurrence Ulster-Scots writing created a sustained and significant corpus of texts whose effects are still felt in Ulster speech and writing today.
