Sorley Maclean remembered,
This review is from: From Wood to Ridge/O Choille gu Bearradh: Collected Poems (Paperback)
Sorley Maqclean was well known to my family who lived on Raasay after my father retired from the Royal Navy at the end of WW2. Sorley was a fervant Scottish patriot and his verses reflect this as they do his concern over the Spanish Civil War, Highland Clearances and WW2.
Unless one is familiar with Scottish history and Sorley's background his poetry could be hard going. I last saw him when he was Headmaster of Plockton School, not long before he died. A lovely man.
