The Scottish Humanist George Buchanan's poetic paraphrase of the psalms of David took a lifetime and garnered much attention for its author. This work not shows only Christian devotion, but is also an excellent example of neo-Latin poetry, a first-rate work with a sensitive appreciation for classical authors. Roger Green provides here the integral critical edition of Buchanan’s work, along with an English translation and thoroughly concise commentary for each poem. His introduction considers composition, the history of publishing and psalms, Buchanan’s life and the consequences of the Portuguese inquisition, the legacy of classical poetry in the work as well as its reception over the following four centuries.
