A Gathering : A Personal Anthology of Scottish Poems Paperback / softback



A poem does not have to be famous to be cherished. The best-known poems of Robert Burns have been loved by countless people over the years, but there are other poems that may be largely unknown that will mean a great deal to the few who are familiar with them. This anthology is a personal curation and not just a simple collection of poems.

Each poem, handpicked by Alexander McCall Smith, leads the reader from one poem to the another.

Intimate in tone, the editor shares the pleasure he finds in these poems through short epigraphs written for each piece.
