Kathleen Jamie has long been interested in the complex intersections of personal and national identity. This chapter takes up the theme of the individual poetic voice working in collaboration with other voices - other artists, writers, and members of local and national communities. The discussion focuses on two volumes, A Flame in Your Heart, a collection of verse co-written with fellow poet Andrew Greig, and her most recent volume, Frissure, a mixed media work composed in collaboration with the visual artist Brigid Collins. This chapter argues that Jamie is a poet with a strong sense of place and social connection. Her strikingly original voice is paradoxically one that emerges out of (and in) dialogue with others.
