Roehampton Poetry Prize
Saltire Society Book of the Year Award
In her extraordinary collection, Kathleen Jamie examines her native Scotland - a country at once wild and contained, rural and urban - and her place within it. In the author's own words: '2014 was a year of tremendous energy in my native Scotland, and knowing I wanted to embrace that energy and participate in my own way, I resolved to write a poem a week, and follow the cycle of the year.' The poems also venture into childhood and family memory - and look to ahead to the future.
The Bonniest Companie is a visionary response to a year shaped and charged by both local and global forces, and will stand as a remarkable document of our times.
Ahead of Burn’s Night, the annual celebration of Scotland’s most famous poet, we’ve put together a list of our favourite modern poets from North of the border.
We're delighted to announce that Ian Duhig, John Glenday and Kathleen Jamie have been shortlisted for the Roehampton Poetry Prize 2016.
