In this new collection, Ken Cockburn beautifully expresses the interplay between landscape and literature. Separated into two complementary sections, personal observances of settings in Scotland and abroad mingle with reflections on favourite books - encyclopaedias, comics, and ancient poetry included. The first section conveys humankind's need to leave a mark on the world, the second looks at how books influence personal experiences. It is a worthy addition to any poetry collection.
