The publication of Priscilla Bawcutt’s complete edition of The Poems of William Dunbar provides the opportunity for a critical stocktaking on Dunbar studies and the chance to map out areas in which more extensive enquiry should be undertaken. This volume of essays thus both celebrates the culmination of scholarship which Bawcutt’s edition represents, and indicates new directions for the next phase of work on one of Scotland’s greatest poets.
