This selection explores the diversity of Hugh MacDiarmid's work, from delicate lyrics derived from the Scots ballad tradition to fierce polemic. "A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle" and "On a Raised Beach--"with a full glossary of its technical terms--are included, as are glossed Scots words at the foot of each page and an illuminating memoir by MacDiarmid's son.
