Ron Butlin is one of Scotland's most original authors, a poet, playwright, novelist, short story writer and opera librettist whose books have been translated into many languages. "The best, most productive Scottish poet of his generation". -- Douglas Dunn. "A romantic who seasons his fancies with wit and parody...a convincing poet of human love". -- Peter Porter. His poems are concerned with what lies just beyond our reach or else is hidden too deep within each of us to be expressed in any other way. These particular Histories of Desire emerge in often fanciful response to the demands of love, friendship, bereavement, travel, and always desire.
