The comic poems of William Tennant by William Tennant( Book )

9 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Anster Fair remained one of the most popular comic poems by a Scot throughout the nineteenth century. It has gone through several editions since it first appeared in 1812, but has long been out of print. Couched in the Italian ottava rima stanza, it is thought that Byron may have seen a contemporary review of it, adopting the stanza-form, including the far-fetched rhyme-scheme, for, among other poems, Beppo and Don Juan. The author of Anster Fair was a Fife man, William Tennant (1784-1848), who trained for the ministry but in later life occupied the Chair of Oriental Languages in St Mary's College, St Andrews. In addition to Anster Fair, this volume includes Papistry Storm'd, a humourous account of the Knoxian mob-attack on the Cathedral of St Andrews, together with some examples of Tennant's shorter pieces in Scots. The Comic Poems of William Tennant brings together an enjoyable group of poems, the best of his voluminous output

The youth and manhood of Cyril Thornton by Thomas Hamilton( Book )

8 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Youth and Manhood of Cyril Thornton, first published by Blackwood in 1827, gives a remarkably vivid evocation of merchant life in Glasgow, and of life in the old Glasgow University, just before the full onset of the Industrial Revolution. It is on the whole a warmly sympathetic portrait, though Scots foibles, as pertinent today as they were nearly two centuries ago, are gently satirised. The novel also gives an account of the confusion and futility which characterises all wars, as experienced during the earlier part of the Peninsular campaign, in which the author was a serving officer
