Review:
'Magisterial' * The Herald * 'An ongoing education in the marvellous possibilities of lyric poetry' -- Seamus Heaney 'A wonderful book which will give years of pleasure' -- Douglas Dunn
Synopsis:
MacCaig's life and poetry was principally divided into two parts, represented by two locales: his home city of Edinburgh provided contrast with his holiday home of Assynt, a remote area in North-west Scotland where he spent much time, especially in the summer months. The landscape and people of Assynt provided inspirations for his poetry as well as bringing MacCaig close friendships and a love for the land. As he became older, MacCaig's fame spread and he received such honours as the O.B.E. and the Queen's Medal for Poetry. By the time of his death in January 1996, Norman MacCaig was known widely as the grand old man of Scottish poetry. This book is the third edition of MacCaig's Collected Poems and is edited by his son Ewen. This edition contains 778 poems, 100 of them previously unpublished, and has, in addition, a context piece, author's words and CD of readings. It is a definitive (though not complete) collection.
