William Auld

page 1
William Auld is the most renowned of the four poets and prose writers who burst onto the Esperanto literary scene in 1951, with the publication of Kvaropo, thus establishing the "Scottish School". The other three members of the quartet were John Dinwoodie, John Francis and Reto Rossetti. Auld had in fact debuted earlier during the latter days of Literatura Mondo (1947-49) and from 1949 to 1955 he edited the modest but historically significant periodical Esperanto en Skotlando which was a forum for the young writers of that time. The publication of Kvaropo also marked the emergence of Stafeto, the publishing house established by Prof Juan Regulo-Perez in La Laguna, which filled the gap left by the disappearance of Literatura Mondo and its publishing activities.
