Pretty obscure, and written in medieval Scots - Lament for the Makaris is a great poem. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0198710178, Paperback)

Henryson is widely thought to be the best Scottish poet of the 15th century, but modern readers are sometimes bothered by the difficulties that the language presents. This edition, a revised and shortened version of Fox's large 1981 edition, allows the non-specialist to read Henryson with accuracy and ease. Fox has revised both the introduction and the annotations, adapting them to the needs of a more general audience, and he has added a useful glossary of obscure words.
