Poems about grandparents and grandchildren, mothers and fathers, aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, not forgetting cousins, this anthology offers a unique insight into family dynamics, and the happiness and unhappiness we find among the people dealt to us as kin. In English, Scots and Gaelic, with glossary and English translations.
Family is the one thing we all know about – whether family gives you strength, or breaks your heart, whether your idea of family stays steadfast through generations, or whether your family is a million miles away from kids or rosy-cheeked grannies. This book helps us think about and celebrate family moments and family members. The contents ranges from Robert Burns to Liz Lochhead, from happy babies to the death of a father. It is the fourth in the series of anthologies which provide words for important occasions – “Handfast”, “Handsel” and “Lament”, were also published by Polygon and the Scottish Poetry Library but are now out of print.
