This small, handsome and portable hardback volume showcases Scotland's rich poetic heritage, with poems celebrating the land, history, faith, character and tensions of the place. Giants of the canon, like Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and Hugh Macdiarmid are well represented, and there are excellent tastes of contemporary Scottish poets like the brilliant Don Paterson as well. The book is divided into four thematic sections organized around place, prayer, philosophy and personal matters. If your annual Burns Supper only serves to kindle your passion for the varieties of musical and witty Scottish poetry, this compact anthology is a perfect next stop. Part of the Everyman Library Pocket Poets Series. 256 pages.
