Greengown: New and Selected Poems

Available

Description

David Kinloch is one of the notable Scottish poets of his generation. Edwin Morgan admired his 'sparkling poems full of sensuous richness and linguistic inventiveness'; and Douglas Messerli declared, 'David Kinloch is surely one of the most innovative poets ever to come out of Scotland... [his] readers must be prepared to take a long voyage through language, imagination, and space. While it isn't always easy, it's always worth the trip.'

This is his fifth Carcanet collection. It includes a distillation of his earlier work, and new poems that delight and challenge. Morgan praised his success in the 'impossible genre', the prose poem, his elegies, his flytings. He has been an activist as well as a poet, helping to set up The Edwin Morgan Trust and the first Scottish Writers' Centre.
