The Bonniest Companie

By (author) Kathleen Jamie

In her extraordinary collection, Kathleen Jamie examines her native Scotland – a country at once wild and contained, rural and urban – and her place within it. In the author’s own words : ‘2014 was a year of tremendous energy in my native Scotland, and knowing I wanted to embrace that energy and participate in my own way, I resolved to write a poem a week, and follow the cycle of the year.’ The poems also venture into childhood and family memory – and look to ahead to the future. The Bonniest Company is a visionary response to a year shaped and charged by both local and global forces, and will stand as a remarkable document of our times.
