Product Description

Review

Featuring poems of first love, yearning for love, love in absence and eternal love, this vibrant selection spans the centuries from traditional verse to contemporary poetry in Gaelic, Scots and English. THE SCOTS MAGAZINE Conn's achievement is to have created a feelgood anthology in which doubt, loss, jealousy and impermanence are all given their due... Like the best dark chocolate, the contents of this slim volume linger ambiguously on the palate. THE SUNDAY TIMES

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This mixture of old and new verse, featuring many poets I had never heard of, is inspirational and gives the lie to any notion that Scots are cold and withdrawn. Stewart Conn has selected cleverly, encompassing love in all its forms, from patriotism to passion. Anyone who is not stirred to either tears or laughter or admiration is dead of soul. It makes one truly proud to be Scottish and to have a language which is something more than mere English.
