Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book titled John Stewart of Baldynneis Roland Furious: A Scots Poem in its European Context contains the table of contents. The poetry of John Stewart of Baldynneis, one of James VI's soi disant Castalian Band, is a relatively unknown phenomenon of the Renaissance period. The book is a critical edition of his epic poem Roland Furious, supposedly a translation of Ludovico Ariosto's Orlando Furioso into Scots but actually a brilliantly original poem which directly follows guidelines given by James VI for the creation of such literature in the Scottish vernacular. The book provides an important link in the history of Scottish poetry.

Keywords: John Stewart; Renaissance period; Roland Furious; Scottish poetry
