Yogh for the poet
Baird and the schools and further education committee of the Association for Scottish Literary Studies have produced a booklet in the Scotnotes series to help. So Henryson's version of Aesop's Fables may become better known, and Baird makes a strong case for "The Testament of Cresseid" which he claims is "one of the most powerful and affecting poems which has ever been written in these islands".
Henryson was described by fellow poet William Dunbar as "the schoolmaster of Dunfermline". Amazing what the profession managed to produce before institutes of education and the General Teaching Council.
