"No Scottish poet is as firmly rooted, none so eloquently elegiac". -- Verse. In this new collection Conn returns to his Ayrshire roots, not just geographically, but to encompass history, social change and shifts of identity. He explores other locations and preoccupations, extending his horizons but never losing touch with Scotland or his own Scottishness. His work is suffused with what Douglas Dunn in the Oxford Companion to twentieth Century Poetry calls his "unnerving sense of the fragility of life".
