The Other Tongues is a beautifully-produced, ground-breaking and major anthology in a coffee-table-book format, aimed at the general reader in English as well as in Irish, Scots Gaelic and Scots. With 79 texts spanning three centuries (evenly divided between each tongue: poems, prose extracts and songs), this colourful and educative anthology seeks to introduce the general reader to writing in the three minority tongues that coexist with the English language across the North Channel, in Scotland and the nine counties of Ulster.

Each text is accompanied by a striking image, a biographical note and a translation into English, making each two-page spread an elegant but succinct introduction to the author, aimed at the general public rather than a specialist or academic audience. Drawing on the renowned production values of The Irish Pages Press, the anthology is characterized design elegance of a high order, in terms of typography, layout, paper and visual imagery.

The anthology also comprises three introductions (one for each language, with translation), an index of authors, a list of illustrations, and suggestions for further reading – making this volume an ideal resource for the classroom, both at secondary and university levels.
