These two volumes contain a miscellany of Irish bardic poetry, historical and religious, which was drawn partly from the historical poems of the Duanaire in the Yellow Book of Lecan. The compositions edited here illustrate the various periods, styles and metres practised by the filí. The editor, Lambert McKenna, was a noted authority on this type of poetry. He also edited for the Society a two-volume collection of bardic poems entitled Iomarbhágh na bhFileadh The Contention of the Bards (vols 20, 21). Accompanying the text of the present volumes are extensive notes and glossaries.
