From The Line: Scottish War Poetry 1914-1945
- Hardback - Association for Scottish Literary Studies
The first half of the 20th century witnessed two catastrophic global conflicts, with suffering on a scale that - thankfully - later generations find hard to comprehend. The full story of what it was like to endure these wars might never be told, because many who survived chose not to speak - or could not speak - of what they saw and suffered. But some could turn to poetry, to try and make sense of what was happening. This book brings together the best of Scotland's poetry from the two World Wars: 138 poems, from 56 poets, are represented here, from both men and women, from battlefields across the world and from the Home Front, too.

The Scottish Cat: An Anthology Of Scottish Cat Poems
- Hardback - Birlinn
Cats have always had a special appeal to poets - they exhibit so many human attributes, not least that characteristic Scottish trait, thrawnness. According to legend, the Scots were the first northern people to keep cats, and Scots have taken cats to their hearts ever since. This anthology of over 60 poems explores the relationship between people and felines from Henryson's 15th-century account of 'Gib Hunter, our Jolie Cat', through 18th century Aesopian tales, 19th-century cat-and-mouse tussles to more modern depictions of this domestic yet mysterious animal by poets such as Alastair Reid, who explore the ambivalent side of 'the tiger who eats from the hand'.
