About the Book
In the seventies and eighties, The Lost Poets – Ron Butlin, Andrew Greig, Liz Lochhead and Brian McCabe, with musician James Hutcheson – were Scotland’s reply to the Liverpool Poets. For many years they were regulars on the Edinburgh Fringe and elsewhere. With their unique blend of poetry and music they proved to be an inspiration for much of today’s spoken-word movement. Each of them went on to highly successful careers as novelists, playwrights and visual artists, as well as continuing to publish poetry.
This collection celebrates The Lost Poets’ work and contains new as well as previously published work
