2006 marks the 60th anniversary of the deaths of two significant 20th-century Scottish poets: Marion Angus and Violet Jacob. Both women came from the North-East of Scotland, and both produced poetry richly coloured by the voices and music of the region – although they also drew on influences from across Europe and beyond.
This new edited collection makes available an extensive selection of their poetry from across the span of their careers. Organised chronologically in the order of their publication, it allows readers to follow the development of each poet’s writing through time, and gain an understanding of the breadth of their bodies of work.
Passionate and radical, lyrical and rich in human experience, the poems of Marion Angus and Violet Jacob will delight and captivate. More than 200 poems are included in this comprehensive anthology, along with an overview of each poet’s life, a short synopsis of major themes in their poetry, and notes on individual poems, providing an invaluable critical background for a full appreciation of their work.
Katherine Gordon received her PhD in Scottish Literature from the University of Glasgow in 2000. She has written widely on the poetry of Marion Angus and Violet Jacob and is currently Assistant Professor of English at St Louis Community College, Missouri.
