Synopsis

Many of Scotland's most important poets grew up or chose to live on Scottish islands. This anthology pays tribute to the islands' creative output by bringing together a huge array of poetic talent, from the internationally-renowned - Sorley Maclean, Iain Crichton Smith, George Mackay Brown, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Hugh MacDiarmid - to those fantastic poets deserving of more attention - Jim Mainland, Aonghas MacNeacail, Meg Bateman, Alex Cluness, Jen Hadfield, and many more - in one wonderful collection. With poems exploring the themes of love, language, landscape, identity and belonging, 'These Islands, We Sing' is a significant and heartfelt celebration of poetry and place.
