The Duntroon Toponymy

The Duntroon Toponymy coverA sequence of poems linking two calendars: the one posted out every year to the countries of the Scottish diaspora, the other a showcase for glossy shots of New Zealand. The place names of each calendar are the same but their meanings and the layers of history they have overwritten are different.

Reviews of The Duntroon Toponymy

“The measured twenty-line poems beguile us with landscape, mythology, search for identity, history, meaning;”

“These are complex poems, rigorous in their demands on the reader, but the language and the meticulous craft make a growing acquaintance with them an increasing delight.”

Anne Macleod, NorthWords
