Educated in Scotland and France, George Buchanan became one of the most influential writers of 16th century Europe. Writing in the lingua franca of his time - Classical Latin - he was to be hailed internationally as 'easily the prince of poets'. Here fifteen scholars, from many countries, analyse his writings, his creative use of ancient texts for contemporary purposes, and his impact on the culture of Scotland and of Europe - not least in the spheres of tragedy and music.

George Buchanan (1506-82) was the most distinguished Scottish humanist of the sixteenth century with an unparalleled contemporary reputation as a Latin poet, playwright, historian and political theorist. However, while his contemporary importance as the scourge of Mary Queen of Scots and advocate of popular rebellion has long been recognised, this volume represents the first attempt to explore the subsequent influence of his ideas and his contested reputation as a political ideologue and cultural icon.

George Buchanan had an eventful career. Tutor to Mary, Queen of Scots and James VI, imprisoned and tortured by the Inquisition in Portugal, teacher of Montaigne in France and a leader of the Scottish Reformation, Buchanan was regarded throughout 16th century Europe as the greatest poet of his age. His poetry ranges from satire to celebration, from elegy to devotional verse, and they are full of wit. However, his choice of Latin as a medium has distanced readers from his work, and his poetry, celebrated across all Europe during the Renaissance, is now rarely read. Here, for the first time ever, Polygon presents a selection of Buchanan's work, translated and accompanied by the work of Arthur Johnston, a great admirer and contemporary of Buchanan's, and a fellow Scot. Johnston is regarded as Scotland's finest Renaissance Latin poet, after Buchanan, but again his work is little known. Both these poets are internationally-minded writers whose vivacity, strength and inventiveness deserve a modern audience.
