About this Item: Collier MacMillan Ltd, London, 1968. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks.130 pages clean and tight. Here is a representative anthology of the poetry of the revival which began with Hugh MacDiarmid. The selection covers a. wide range of poets and features the essence of the contribution each has made. Poems especially characteristic of their author have been chosen. Thus some are represented at length, not only on account of their quality but also for the variety of their styles. In his Introduction, George Bruce traces the revival of modern Scottish poetry and brings out its chief characteristics, comparing and contrasting the poets represented. Thus he provides helpful guide-lines for the student. A glossary is provided for each poem as required, and there is an index of first lines. For Scots themselves at this present time, a recognition of the achievements of Scottish poets of this period is essential. In the poems they will find a reflection of their own distinctive attributes and character. Size: 8vo. Seller Inventory # 140342

About this Item: MacDonald Publishers, Loanhead, Midlothian, Scotland, 1980. Hard Cover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Dust jacket complete, unclipped. Original cloth boards with bright gilt titling on spine. No ownership marks. 259 pages clean and tight. While Hugh MacDiarmid's reputation is now secure not only in Scotland but also in the international world of the modern poetic sequence, a detailed and knowledgeable guide to his work has been hitherto lacking. Concentrating on MacDiarmid's major poems, Professor Boutelle traces here the themes, influences, motifs and passions that haunted his work. He was a man who dared to shape an idiosyncratic and brave vision, one whose ingredients include the vast possibilities for human achievement and the brutal ugliness of human failure. He was a poet who broke new ground, who found a new voice, who created a new myth. The heights and depths of the man's achievement are measured here. And with that measuring comes a new basis for the critical commonplace that MacDiarmid belongs in the company of Dunbar and Burns-or in that of Eliot, Pound and Yeats. Size: 8vo.

About this Item: Carcanet, Manchester, 1994. First edition, thus. Hardback. 436pp. Bright red cloth; lettered in gilt; in a fine, protected dust-jacket. Although he incited controversy during his life for his support of English Fascism, communism and Scottish Nationalism, he is now widely acknowledged for his influential role in the Scottish Renaissance and his impact on Scottish language, culture and literature. He is probably best known for his works written in a 'literary version' of the Scottish language MacDiarmid developed called Lallans. This new edition of Lucky Poet, originally published in 1943 is described by Edwin Morgan as "a unique book, chaotic, repetitive, careless in every kind of detail, yet bursting with suggestive ideas, instant flytings, brilliant analogies, and pages of vers libre." For other titles by MacDiarmid in the same Carcanet series, please see the following ABE listings: 9186 - SCOTTISH ECCENTRICS 9184 - COMPLETE POEMS - VOLUME II 4593 - SELECTED PROSE. Book.

About this Item: William Blackwood And Sons, 1925. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First Edition published by William Blackwood And Sons in 1925. Second issue with pale blue cloth and black titling. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Some pushing at the spine ends with a little rubbing to the edges. Some toning to the text-block with some spotting to the prelims and endpapers. Occasional light spot to the pages in places. The WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ or better condition. Toning to the edges, folds and the spine. Light creasing and mild edge-wear at the spine ends with a little loss. The wrapper is protected in a removable Brodart archival cover. The book has been Inscribed and Signed By the Author to the front blank endpaper; Signed for my friend, Douglas Sealy, with every high regard and good wish from Hugh M'Diarmid, Dublin, Dec' 67'. The recipient Douglas Sealy was a literary critic, teacher and a renowned translator of Irish poetry. Hugh MacDiarmid (C.M. Grieve) was Scotlandís most influential and controversial writer in the 20th century. He urged and enabled the regeneration of all aspects of Scotlandís literature and culture through his poetry, polemical writing and political activity. 'A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle' (1926) is generally regarded as Scotlandís masterpiece of Modernism. 'He started writing in Scots, using words and phrases he knew from boyhood and acquired from reading in dictionaries and works of Scottish literature from earlier eras. The poems of Sangschaw (1925), Penny Wheep (1926) and A Drunk Man Looks At The Thistle (1926) were shocking, adult, wry, rebarbative, difficult, piercingly sweet, unsentimental and brutal. They established a new dispensation for Scottish literature, and modernist lusts: for the body and the sexually explicit cognate with Joyce and Lawrence; for the local and demotic, cognate with William Carlos Williams; for the difficult, cognate with Eliot; for the vatic and austere, cognate with Yeats and Pound; for the intellectually demanding, cognate with Stevens and Valéry; but uniquely in the Scottish context, reclaiming a literary history that had fallen into neglect and obfuscation. Forget about Burns, he advised, go back to Dunbar and Henryson, recover and reclaim a national tradition that goes back through millennia.' (Scottish Poetry Library). A wonderful signed association copy of the author's first poetry collection and scarce with such attributes. Ashton Rare Books welcomes direct contact. Signed by Author(s).

The book has been Signed By the Author to the front blank endpaper; C.M.Grieve ('Hugh M'Diarmid'). Accompanied by a H/W and signed letter from the author to George Malcolm Thomson dated 2/1/54. Thomson has also signed his name to the front blank endpaper indicating that this book was his personal copy. George Malcolm Thomson was 'a crusading journalist, literary publisher, novelist and playwright and was the epitome of a thrusting new class of Scottish intellectuals who emerged out of the ruins of the Great War. In the 1930s, he earned the sobriquet of being Scotlandís ďbest-hated manĒ while still only 28. M'Diarmid and Thomson were to clash over the formation of the Scottish National Party (SNP) in 1934 from a merger of MacDiarmidís separatist National Party of Scotland (NPS) and the right-wing Scottish Party (SP), in which Thomson played a central (if shadowy) role.' (Kerevan). Hugh MacDiarmid (C.M. Grieve) was Scotlandís most influential and controversial writer in the 20th century. He urged and enabled the regeneration of all aspects of Scotlandís literature and culture through his poetry, polemical writing and political activity. 'A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle' (1926) is generally regarded as Scotlandís masterpiece of Modernism. 'He started writing in Scots, using words and phrases he knew from boyhood and acquired from reading in dictionaries and works of Scottish literature from earlier eras. The poems of Sangschaw (1925), Penny Wheep (1926) and A Drunk Man Looks At The Thistle (1926) were shocking, adult, wry, rebarbative, difficult, piercingly sweet, unsentimental and brutal. They established a new dispensation for Scottish literature, and modernist lusts: for the body and the sexually explicit cognate with Joyce and Lawrence; for the local and demotic, cognate with William Carlos Williams; for the difficult, cognate with Eliot; for the vatic and austere, cognate with Yeats and Pound; for the intellectually demanding, cognate with Stevens and Valéry; but uniquely in the Scottish context, reclaiming a literary history that had fallen into neglect and obfuscation. Forget about Burns, he advised, go back to Dunbar and Henryson, recover and reclaim a national tradition that goes back through millennia.' (Scottish Poetry Library). A loose 16 x 12cm B/W portrait study photograph of Hugh M'Diarmid also accompanies the above. This striking photograph is by Andrew Paterson and is in Very Good+ condition. Andrew Paterson was an Inverness-born photographer who became an internationally renowned, multi-award winning portrait photographer whose services were sought over several decades by many leading political and commercial figures of the day. The photograph has the name C M Grieve, 'Hugh M'Diarmid' in pencil and in green ink ' ? name, Portrait study by Andrew Paterson, Inverness' to the verso. The green ink inscription has been verified as the hand of Andrew Paterson and it is likely that the pencilled name is the hand of Hugh M'Diarmid. Accompanied by a loose ticket to mark the 70th birthday of Hugh M'Diarmid from the Edinburgh City Committee Communist party. A wonderful signed association copy of the author's first poetry collection accompanied by scarce ephemera. Scarce with such attributes. More images available on request.
