Awa' An' Bile Yer Heid!: Scottish Curses and Insults

Awa' An' Bile Yer Heid!: Scottish Curses and Insults

by David Ross (Author), Barbara Robertson (Illustrator)

Synopsis

When it comes to invective and insult, the Scots are amongst the world leaders. From football through the weather to politics, each other and of course the English, there is nothing about which a Scot does not have a scathing remark to make. In order not to be biased, the author has included many of the comments non Scots have made about Scotland and its people. A rich and ripe collection of offensiveness is presented in this volume, from the flytings of William Dunbar and of Sir David Lindsay, to the writings of Irvine Welsh and the members of Paisley Town Council.
