Deò

By Marcas Mac an Tuairneir

Poetry | Paperback, eBook


In Deò, Mark Spencer-Turner, an up and coming young poet, released his first collection of poems in Scottish Gaelic, with his own translations into English. Martin MacIntyre said of the collection: “I was privileged to be given a sneak preview of Marcas’ work in progress over the last two years or so; you now have the pleasure collected here in ‘Deò’ and desirous of your active reading. These poems take us to many places, both physical and emotional, and they do so in carefully crafted apposite language. Fear, darkness and regret are there but also joy and hope and pursuit of a richer world. We often meet love. As is her wont, her capricious nature reveals anger, dissatisfaction, and bewilderment even, that she is not properly understood. She is also though capable of forgiveness, of falling head-over-heels, and does not conceal wonder at how deeply she has been stirred from placid repose.”
