New Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect by Robert Crawford

Book Description

Published as 'a sly wink to the master', this anthology of contemporary poetry is full of surprises. Twelve leading Scottish poets were asked to supply a selection of new work appropriate to Robert Burns' title "Poems, Chiefly in the Scottish Dialect". Here are the many responses from John Burnside, Robert Crawford, Douglas Dunn, Alasdair Gray, W N Herbert, Kathleen Jamie, Jackie Kay, David Kinloch, Tom Leonard, Liz Lochhead, Don Paterson and Robin Robertson. With titles from "Own Goal" to "Maw Broon Goes for Colonic Irrigation", the poems are in turn daft, uproarious and tenderly lyrical, rejoicing in the canny and uncanny possibilities of the Scots and English tongues.

On Glasgow and Edinburgh by Robert Crawford On Glasgow and Edinburgh, Paperback (November 2015)

A mere forty miles apart, these cities have enjoyed a rivalry since wistful Edinburgh lost parliamentary sovereignty and defiant Glasgow came into its industrial promise. Crawford brings them to life between the covers of one book, in a tale that mixes novelty and familiarity, as Scotland s cultural capital and largest commercial city do."
