Between Mountain and Sea : Poems From Assynt Paperback / softback

Edited by Roderick Watson


'Two Men at Once' is one of Norman MacCaig best known poems.

He was indeed two men at once: Edinburgh, the city where he was bornand lived as a teacher and poet, was his home, but no other place shaped his poetry more than Assynt in Sutherland.

It is here that he wouldspend many a summer on family holidays, walking the hills and fishing the lochs.

MacCaig's fresh eye saw remarkable newness even in theeveryday and each poem is a tiny revelation, a new look at an old friend.

This collection celebrates, renews, and rediscovers Norman MacCaig'sAssynt.
