George Mackay Brown ( 1921 - 1996), was a Scottish poet, author and dramatist, whose work has a distinctly Orcadian character. He is considered one of the great Scottish poets of the 20th century.

Book Description Hogarth Press, London, 1976. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Good. Davey, Patricia (illustrator). First Edition. 268 pages. 440 grams. This book is in good ex-library condition with light associated markings and attachments. The dust jacket is in good condition currently enclosed in library protective sleeve. 'These superbly evocative stories by George Mackay Brown, centred on the people of the Orkneys, range widely in time and in theme. The strange and chequered romance between a young English prisoner of war and the daughter of his Scottish captor is set in the wake of Robert Bruce's victory at Bannockburn, while two related stories tell of mutiny and piracy in the early 18th century and a curious sequel in a Hamnavoe merchant's home. 'The Book Of Black Arts' is a chilling account of a chain of pacts with the devil, the prosperity thus attained and the price exacted, while 'A Winter Tale' records a half-glimpsed Nativity in modern times. The light humour of a fishy courtship in 'Silver' contrasts with the journey of a half-ghost across Brig-O-Dread, the little stone bridge that divides sea from loch, parish from parish, and brings him into 'an august mercilessly ordering of flames'. And perhaps most characteristic of the author's celebration of his chosen earth is 'Soldier from the Wars Retuning:' a revenant from the field of battle finst that life continues and the seed is sown no matter how the war has gone - and learns not to resent this overmastering fact. Here as elsewhere in this book is a potent mingling of legend and actuality, the workaday and the sacramental, the changes time brings and the ancient underlying rhythms of a people's spiritual life.' 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Illustrator: Davey, Patricia. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Fiction, Modern First Editions.; ISBN: 0701204192. ISBN/EAN: 9780701204198.
