Product description


"Not only talented and dedicated, he is also original . . . finding and making a literature in the clash and intersection of languages and cultures" (Andrew Greig)

"If you fancy a mixture of dancing logic, loving grace and cosmopoetic jazz, with a lot of Hebridean hootchie-kootchie, including Harris rain coming down in haikus and a skinkling of protogaelic Lewisian gneiss, not forgetting the ever-loving old calidoneein antisysithing, this guy's got it." (Kenneth White)

"To meet one so in tune with his languages and with his subject-matter, so young, is a rare and special experience. At the beginning of his poetic career, Kevin MacNeil is already in the uplands of achievement." (Aonghas MacNeacail)
