Summary: Addressing expansive themes—from love and power to submission and death—this collection of poetry, culled from the author's impressive 40 year career, employs a tender, moving voice. Encapsulating the splintered lifestyles of the islands in northern Scotland, these works carry a central theme of culture divided while touching on subjects such as the tyranny of religion, the cramped life in a small community, and the struggles faced by men and women in a world defined by denials.
