Diary of a Divorce

Diary of a Divorce

This sequence of poems about the
disintegration of a marriage and its aftermath
captures how quotidian events inexorably
contribute to the breakdown of unity, identity,
and truth between partners and how they are
reforged over time within oneself. Because of
the poet’s candour, these poems aff ord the
reader a rare understanding of the processes
at work, and at the same time are both a
lament and a reclamation.

This is an exceptional debut collection.

The whole pamphlet is heartbreakingly beautiful.

... incredibly powerful, forensic and unwavering, and of course word-perfect. I'm very taken by how unexpected so many of your turns of phrase are, the way you move between powerful punches and graceful almost-analytical perspectives. A work of art...

This memorial pamphlet is intended as a tribute to the poet and as a companion to Window-cleaner Sees Paintings, my selection of Wigman's poetry published by Arc in 2016.

Skald - Sword & Sea-Cloud

Skald - Sword & Sea-Cloud

The poet Ian Crockatt has published two superb translations of Viking poetry with Arc- Crimsoning the Eagle's Claw: the Viking Poems of Rognvaldr Kali Kolsson, Earl of Orkney and The Song Weigher: the Complete Poems of Egill Skallagrimsson, Tenth Century Viking & Skald — and in this chapbook he uses the same highly-wrought form developed by the Skalds (the professional poets employed by the kings and earls of the Viking courts of the 9th to 13th centuries) to tell a quasi-Viking tale set in the landscapes and seascapes once under Viking control — the West Coast of Scotland where he used to live, and the north-east corner of Scotland where he now lives.

Smithereens

Smithereens

Evocative, spiritual poems from a Pakistan-born poet living and working in the Scottish Highlands. Tariq Latif's work captures the moments of beauty, alienation, distance and intimacy he finds in the wilderness and remote towns of a region so often associated with emptiness, but which the poet shows us is rich with vivid life.
