The Magicians of Edinburgh

A collection of poems by

Edinburgh has long inspired writers, from Robert Louis Stevenson to Hugh MacDiarmid. In this sparkling new collection of poems about the city in the twenty-first century, renowned poet and novelist Ron Butlin draws on his experience as Edinburgh's Makar, or Poet Laureate. With verve and wit, Butlin leads the reader on a journey through multi-faceted Edinburgh, a place of sweeping vistas and strip bars, grand towers and failed tramlines, world heritage and homelessness. Underlying all these poems, whether satirical or celebratory, is a deep love for the architecture, landscape and people of Scotland's capital city. The Magicians of Edinburgh will delight long-time residents and visitors alike.
