 About the Book 

From wooings to waiting, from first love to farewells, here are the romantics and the unromantics, the obsessed and the fainthearted in all their lyrical glory. Ballads, sonnets and modern verse are all present in a variety of Scots and EnglishMoreFrom wooings to waiting, from first love to farewells, here are the romantics and the unromantics, the obsessed and the fainthearted in all their lyrical glory. Ballads, sonnets and modern verse are all present in a variety of Scots and English forms. The poems range in tone from scathing satire to evocative romanticism. Fraser has made a wide-ranging selection of poems from the 15th century to the present day. Included are well-known masters - Burns, Sir Walter Scott and Robert Louis Stevenson - and contemporary poets such as Kathleen Jamie, John Burnside and Carol Ann Duffy.
