Poems from Shetland
About this book:
Written in the beautiful Scots of the Shetland Islands - a blend of Old Scots and Norn - the poems in this title evoke a simple and pure way of life. These are poems with a sense of place, sympathy, commitment to language and the urge to celebrate life itself.
The volume strikes me as sustaining real quality of excitement and as being punctuated by fresh thematic ventures and pulses of energy... A colourful and compelling collection, enriching in the two-way glimpses it gives us into contrasted (and often 'parallel') cultures - and into the human heart. Stewart Conn
