Synopsis

A fresh collection of experimental poems by a Scottish poet and novelist with a cult following, this book is ideal for students of experiemental poetry or of the Scottish contemporary scene. Dealing with the differing parts of the self, this collection explores how the minute variations of identity are expressed as a single human form. Expressing the dialectic, thesis, and synthesis of the human condition—the me, myself, and I—the poems are no more complicated than the doctrine of the Trinity, but are a good deal closer to home.
