Luasganach, neo-chàirdeil, sìorraidh: a’ mhuir agus
uisgeachan ann an sgeulachdan goirid Gàidhlig

Ro-ràdh

Tha fios gu bheil uisge — ann an iomadach seagh — na ìomhaigh chudromach ann am bàrdachd Ghàidhlig. Bha sin fìor tro na linntean, agus chithear anns na caibideilean eile san leabhar seo gu bheil e fhathast fìor san latha an-diugh. Chan eil e idir duilich a thuigsinn carson a bhiodh seo mar a tha e: bha Gàidhlig riamh ga bruidhinn ann an coimhearsnachdan a bha gu mòr an crochadh air nàdar, leis nach robh bailtean mòra no ìmpireachd aig na Gàidheil. O chionn dà cheud bhliadhna no an còrr, tha a’ chuid as motha de na coimhearsnachdan Gàidhlig air a bhith suidhichte air oir na mara. Anns an fhicheadamh linn, thàinig a’ chuid mhòr den litreachas bho sgrìobhadairean às na h-eileanan: an t-Eilean Sgitheanach, eileanan Earra-Ghàidheal, agus na h-Eileanan Siar. Leis an sin, tha tòrr iomraidhean air lochan, aibhnichean agus, gu h-àraidh, air a’ mhuir anns a’ bhàrdachd. Mar a sgrìobh Michelle NicLeòid, agus i a-mach air bàrdachd Leòdhais:

Tha a’ mhuir ri faicinn agus ri cluinntinn bho cha mhòr gach baile agus
clachan ann an Eilean Leòdhais. Tha beò-shlàinte, biadh, toileachas
agus bròn rim faighinn aiste, agus mar sin chan eil e na chùis-iongnaidh
gu bheil a’ mhuir a’ nochdadh gu tric mar ìomhaigh agus cuspair ann
am bàrdachd Leòdhais. (NicLeòid, 2003, td. 121)

Sa chaibideil seo, nithear cnuasachadh air ficsean seach bàrdachd sa Ghàidhlig, airson sealltainn mar a thathar a’ dèiligeadh ris an aon seòrsa thèamannan agus ìomhaigheachd ann an riochd eadar-dhealaichte. A bharrachd air a’ cheangal a tha ann eadar am ficsean agus a’ bhàrdachd, a thaobh ìomhaigheachd agus cuspairean, tha ceangal ann cuideachd eadar rosg ficseanail sgrìobhte agus sgeulachdan bho bheul-aithris.
