Intae the Snaw

Translator and poet Thomas Clark takes us on a journey that explores the new linguistic neighbourhood of Scots in the 21st Century.

In this daring first pamphlet, translator and poet Thomas Clark takes us on a journey that explores the new linguistic neighbourhood of Scots in the 21st Century. In these imaginative re-workings of poetry from across the world, images as diverse as Bede's deathbed and the mountain temples of China are rendered into vibrant Scots verse.

Mixing laconic wit and sparse formal elegance in its travels from classical Chinese poetry to South America by way of Old English, Clark's poetry gives us a fresh angle on literary Scots that makes a stimulating challenge to language from both sides of the border.
