Synopsis: With the exception of pioneers such as Rachel Ann Taylor, Marion Angus, Violet Jacob and Helen Cruickshank, the best known Scottish poets of the early 20th-century were men. However, by the second half of the century it was an entirely different story, as this anthology shows. An introduction sets the scene for the growth of women writers from Scotland including Gaelic poets selected and discussed by Michel Byrne. The collection traces the work of more than 100 writers, some of whom have been forgotten, over the most eventful period in Scottish literary history. The volume goes from Mary Symon, Veronica Forrest-Thomson and Naomi Mitchinson to Sheena Blackhall, Carol Ann Duffy, Dilys Rose, Kathleen Jamie, Catriona MinGumaraid, Meg Bateman, Anne Frater, Angela McSeveney and more.
