Huddleston Collection

Collection of poetry and prose by local writer, Robert Huddleston (1814-1887) of Moneyrea, Co. Antrim. The so-called "Bard of Moneyrea," Huddleston published his major work, "A Collection of Poems and Songs on Rural Subjects" in 1844. He is known for using Ulster dialect in his poems, although a fair proportion of the poetry represented in this collection is in standard English. The collection includes an epic poem by Huddleston satirising the Presbyterian General Assembly of his time.
