Instead of a card, why not send words? These ten poems, selected and introduced by Don Paterson, offer a taste of the poetry of Scotland. Some explore ideas around identity and change, exile and belonging. Others focus on landscape and place, or are principally about language itself. This pamphlet includes poems by George Mackay Brown, Robert Burns, Carol Ann Duffy, Douglas Dunn, Veronica Forrest-Thomson, John Glenday, W.S. Graham, Kathleen Jamie, Hugh MacDiarmid and Jason Watts. The cover illustration is by Edinburgh-based Iain McIntosh.
