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.

About the Author:

Christine De Luca was born and brought up in Shetland, spending her formative years in Waas (Walls) on the west side of the mainland. She now lives in the Edinburgh area. In 1996 she won the Shetland Literary Prize with her first poetry collection Voes & Sounds and again in 1999, Wast Wi Da Valkyries. A third collection, Plain Song, was launched in Shetland and Edinburgh in 2002. It is accompanied by a CD of the poems, read by the author. Her poems have been translated into Italian, Swedish, Polish, Danish, Welsh and English. She has read at over 130 events including Book and Poetry Festivals in: Edinburgh, St Andrews, Inverness, Wigtown, Shetland and in Helsinki.

Review:

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
