Modern Scottish Women Poets free pdf Edited and Introduced by Dorothy McMillan and Michel Byrne. 'This is a book full of life, energy, skill and unexpected found treasure: a blend of major and minor voices which reveals the formation and verve of Scotland's modern poetic.' Ali Smith This invaluable collection traces the work of nearly a hundred writers over one of the most eventful periods in Scottish literary history, and an extensive introduction sets the scene for the growth of women writers from Scotland throughout the whole of the twentieth century. With over 200 poems - from Naomi Mitchison, Carol Ann Duffy, Dilys Rose, Kathleen Jamie, Meg Bateman, Jackie Kay, Liz Lochhead and many more - this collection celebrates the exceptional power and range of Scottish women poets. 'It is a crucial anthology, exciting and dynamic. It feels revolutionary.' Sunday Herald 'This is an ambitious and brilliant collection that both illuminates the female component of a scene dominated by men and establishes a tradition through them that further illuminates their work. It is . . . a celebration of women whose reputations have grown steadily, as well as an indication of a broader confidence across Scottish writing.' Libby Brooks, Guardian
