9781857549607: New Collected Poems: Iain Crichton Smith

Addressing expansive themes—from love and power to submission and death—this collection of poetry, culled from the author's impressive 40 year career, employs a tender, moving voice. Encapsulating the splintered lifestyles of the islands in northern Scotland, these works carry a central theme of culture divided while touching on subjects such as the tyranny of religion, the cramped life in a small community, and the struggles faced by men and women in a world defined by denials.

About the Author:

Iain Crichton Smith is the author of Ends and Beginnings, The Human Face, The Leaf and the Marble, Selected Poems, and Selected Stories.

Review:

"Over the years [his] poetry has increased in strangeness and beauty. He is a poet of his own discontents, but one who has submitted his unrest to the demands of imagination."  —Times Literary Supplement

"It is very seldom that genius so wide and fervent in its sympathies and so lacking in egoism that it can be humorous without trying to be witty or clever."  —Sorley MacLean, author, Hallaig
