About the Book

By the time of his death in January 1996, Norman MacCaig was known widely as the grand old man of Scottish poetry, honoured by an OBE and the Queen's Medal for Poetry. This book is the third edition of "MacCaig's Collected Poems" and is edited by his son Ewen. With 778 poems, 100 of them previously unpublished, this is a remarkable collection.
