Love for Love

An Anthology of Scottish Poets in Love
An anthology of stories edited by

This anthology was compiled by asking 50 poets to select their favourite love poem and write a poem of their own in response. The contributors, writing in English, Gaelic and Scots, include Andrew Greig, Meg Bateman, Stewart Conn, Valerie Gilles, Robin Robertson, Robert Crawford, Kate Clanchy and Rody Gorman. Their chosen poems have been gathered from around the world and across the centuries and range from work by Pablo Neruda, Nina Cassian and Pierre de Ronsard to Iain Crichton Smith, Robert Creeley, William Soutar and Norman McCaig. This simple concept for an anthology of love poetry highlights the notion of the address as the lover beholds the beloved, a dialogue in which the present also beholds the past.
