Highlands, and the city of Edinburgh, Norman MacCaig combined precise observation with creative wit, and wrote with a passion for clarity." -- Publisher's blurb

THE PHOENIX LIVING POETS (CHATTO & WINDUS)
Series Note: A series of slim books of poetry from a cross-section of poets of the period.
The series had its origins in poetry books published by The Hogarth Press that had been established in 1917 by Leonard and Virginia Wolff. In 1946 the Hogarth Press became part of Chatto & Windus. Typically the title pages of The Phoenix Living Poets series state joint publication by Chatto & Windus and The Hogarth Press.
