the borders live again,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Border Ballads (Fyfield Books) (Paperback)
I first came across the Border Ballads at about 13 and have missed them over many years. But this collection [albeit a shorter number of titles than I remember] brought them back to life again. An excellent collection that brings good examples of all the best ballads. The borders were [still arguably are] a place apart, and their unique history in this country is summed up in the ballads that go back centuries and were nearly forgotten until Sir Walter Scott revived interest in them. Wonderful poetry!
