The Collected Poems of George Mackay Brown

By (author) George Mackay Brown; Edited by Archie Bevan; Edited by Brian Murray

George Mackay Brown is recognised as one of Scotland’s greatest twentieth-century lyric poets. His work is integral to the flowering of Scottish literature over the last fifty years. Admired by many fellow poets, including Seamus Heaney and Douglas Dunn, his poems are deeply individual and unmistakable in their setting: ‘the small green world’ of the Orkney Islands where he lived for most of his life with its elemental forces of sea and sky and Norse and Icelandic ancestry, is brought vividly and memorably to life. Here, his rich resonant poetry is collected in one volume, making available again many poems that are otherwise out of print.
