15 of 15 people found the following review helpful By Graham Watson on 10 Nov 2010
Format: Paperback
This slim volume, issued as a centenary celebration of the MacCaig's birth, is both a fitting tribute and a perfect introduction to the work of one of the grand old men of British poetry. Vivid with highland landscapes and shot through with fiery feelings modestly expressed, Norman MacCaig's poems are musical, wry and haunting. Whether lamenting a dead collie, or celebrating Buddha-like frogs he is a master of observation: his voice is intimate, compassionate and brimming with awe for the natural world. Though he died at a fine age, we can still mourn him. 'I look at the face of death,' he writes in Myself After Her Death 'and say 'I hate you' to destroy such wonders.' Buy this book for yourself, or even better buy it for others, and you can be sure it will be cherished.

Really enjoy this book, why was I not taught this at School all these years ago, taken 50 years to find such poetry. Many thanks to Andrew Greig book "At the Green Loch for the introduction."

Brilliant range of poems encompassing every aspect of life. Stunning, often simple but always thought provoking and accessible. These collections have marked key moments in my life and I am now buying them to mark those in my boys' lives...
