Bardic and Historical Survey of Rajputana: A Descriptive.

Posted by 2018 article


In ancient times a Bard was a poet and storyteller who had trained in a Bardic college. In modern times, a Bard is one who sees their creativity as an innate spiritual ability, and who chooses to nurture that ability partly or wholly with Druidism.

In ancient times the Bards were the keepers of tradition, of the memory of the tribe - they were the custodians of the sacredness of the Word. Although they probably represented the first level of training for an apprentice Druid, we should not make the mistake of thinking that a Bard was somehow in a lowly or inferior position. There were many levels of accomplishment, but the most skilled of Bards were held in high esteem and partook of many of the functions of both the Ovate and the Druid.

The training of a Bard was intense and lasted for many years. There were variations in the curricula between Scotland, Ireland and Wales. In Ireland it is recorded that the training lasted twelve years, with students undergoing the following rigorous curriculum:
In the first year, the student progressed from Principle Beginner [Ollaire] to Poet's Attendant [Tamhan] to Apprentice Satirisist [Drisac]. During this time they had to learn the basics of the bardic arts: grammar, twenty stories and the Ogham tree-alphabet.

Sounding Imperial ’s main concern is to analyze a set of “experimental” poems that represent “the poetics of printed voice.” The book follows the lead of studies of oral-to-print media shifts by Celeste Langan, Maureen McLane, Paula McDowell, and others, but takes a turn in a different direction. Mulholland is not interested in the oral per se. Rather, he investigates how eighteenth-century poets tried to render an oral experience in print through innovating new formal features and by turning to “folk...
