Book Description

19 Aug 2002
A superb new collection of haiku and other short poetic forms on the theme of Glasgow - its people, landscape, culture. As always, Spence is uniquely illuminating, witty and delightful. Incorporating some of the poems which appeared decades ago in the much sought-after collection of the same title, Glasgow Zen includes mostly new material from this highly popular and exquisite poet.

Product Description


* One of Scotland's most accomplished literary talents. Times Literary Supplement * Spence takes a little moment of ordinary experience and transforms it, in the simplest possible manner, into something significant ... He is a gentle writer, but never sentimental. The beautiful moments have always been earned. He is a writer to cherish, one offering deep and fulfilling pleasures. -- Allan Massie The Scotsman * Memorable poignancy and poetic compression. Sunday Times * The 150 pieces in this exquisite collection take the reader through the unfolding beauty of the passing seasons, their fleeting delights presented in a pleasing pocket-size format. Scotland on Sunday
