Book Description

Both Sides of Hadrian’s Wall celebrates the best in contemporary poetry from south Scotland and north England.

Rugged landscape and hard weather, Roman colonists and Dark Age saints feature inevitably in the work of these poets. But there is also fantasy, humour, the struggle to reach the essence of art, the stern search for human honesty.

It is a unique anthology which contains work by well-known poets from this disparate region as well as poems by writers who are less well known, or who are just beginning.

If the poets represented share anything, it is a commitment to humanity, to life: this is a collection which is genuinely inspiring.
