    The Buke ofthe Howlat, ed. D. Laing (Edinburgh, ), pp. vi-vii. A sixth brother, George or Henry, who was apparently intended for the church, seems to have died en route to Rome in , before his fifteenth birthday. I assume he was ignored by Holland because of his youth. See W. Fraser, The Douglas Book, i (Edinburgh, ), "Hanna (ed.), The Buke of the Howlat by Richard Holland." Scottish Historical Review, 96(2), pp. –Author: Derrick McClure.

    The world premiere of The Buke of the Howlat will take place in Moray during the Findhorn Bay Arts Festival, which opens tomorrow. Seen as one of the great gems of 15th-century Scots literature, the Buke is a moral fable against vanity and pride written in rhyming verse. So the fact that The Buke of the Howlat does not lose its audience can be counted an achievement of which the performers, amateur and especially professional, can be proud.
