The Gaelic title:
An Clarsair Dall: Orain Ruaidhri Mhic Mhuirich agus a Chuid Ciuil
"Roderic Morison, who was born about 1656 at Bragar in Lewis and who died about 1714, probably near Dunvegan in Skye, is the only example in Gaelic Scotland of the Minstrel. 'Like Demodocus he was blind and like him he graced his poetry with music of the harp.' This blind harper, or An Clarsair Dall, the name by which he is best remembered, was skilled in both these arts. His songs are remarkable not only for their quality but also for the degree of self-disclosure and social awareness which they revealed. . This has been set into a full account of his life and times".
