Robert Crawford

Edinburgh University Press

This assesses Kathleen Jamie's use of Scots across a range of her poetry, but it also has some qualities of a personal tribute by a fellow contemporary poet. Beginning with a discussion of Jamie's collection, The Autonomous Region, Crawford assesses the use of Scots elsewhere in her work. Particularly striking, for example, are her translations of Hölderlin into Scots, in her recent collection, The Overhaul.

Keywords:   Kathleen Jamie, Scots language, Hölderlin, Translation studies, The Autonomous Region, The Overhaul
