Ten Poems from Scotland 2nd Edition

Author(s): Don Paterson [editor]
ISBN13/Barcode: 9781907598685

This revised and updated edition of our ever-popular title offers a fascinating snapshot of the poetry of Scotland. Some poems explore ideas around identity and change, exile and belonging. Others focus on landscape and place, or are principally about language itself. As Don Paterson writes in his introduction, Scottish poets “…excel, I think, at the anti-baroque: leaving words standing so sharp and stark and bold on the page that you can hear the wind whistle round them”.
There is plenty of warmth and humanity here too and a bittersweet longing for the places of childhood:

The Firth is miles and I have come
Back to find Loch Thom maybe
In this light does not recognise me.
from ‘Loch Thom’ by WS Graham

Don Paterson is a poet, musician and academic. He is Professor of Poetry at the University of St Andrews.
