Product Description

Details

Published as 'a sly wink to the master', this anthology of contemporary poetry is full of surprises. Twelve leading Scottish poets were asked to supply a selection of new work appropriate to Robert Burns' title "Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect". Here are the many responses from John Burnside, Robert Crawford, Douglas Dunn, Alasdair Gray, W N Herbert, Kathleen Jamie, Jackie Kay, David Kinloch, Tom Leonard, Liz Lochhead, Don Paterson and Robin Robertson. With titles from "Own Goal" to "Maw Broon Goes for Colonic Irrigation", the poems are in turn daft, uproarious and tenderly lyrical, rejoicing in the canny and uncanny possibilities of the Scots and English tongues.
