Voices from Their Ain Countrie: The Poems of Marion Angus and Violet Jacob

The year 2006 marks the 60th anniversary of the deaths of two major 20th-century Scottish poets: Marions Angus and Violet Jacob. Both women hailed from the North-East of Scotland, and both produced poetry coloured by the voices and music of the region - although they also drew on influences from across Europe and beyond. Serious and whimsical, radical and emotional, the poetry of Angus and Jacob continues to enthrall. More than 200 poems are included in this comprehensive anthology, and editor Katherine Gordon traces their similarities and differences to provide an invaluable critical background for a full appreciation of their work.
