Author: Peter MacKay
An imaginative and innovative poet in Gaelic and English with the sensibility of a native speaker and an astute reader of poetry. The voice of the work here is lyrical and cogent, achieved through stratagems such as intertextuality; near-translation; bilingual sensibility; classical allusion; lists; and exotic vocabulary. This is an intelligent, measured and powerfully resonant collection, with a maturity far beyond that of a poet publishing his first full collection.
