Book Description

Veeve, published in 2021, was Christine’s first full collection of poems for some years. It was published by Mariscat Press in Edinburgh and has a rich mix of poems in English and Shetlandic. Each Shetlandic poem has a glossary for quick reference which give the book a unique size.

Reviews for Veeve

“Veeve is alive with outward-looking, generous poems. It questions ‘whit it means ta belang’, both in her ‘calfgrund’ of Shetland and on an ‘earth made new’. Seamus Heaney once said of Norman MacCaig, ‘He is poetry to me’. I can say that of Christine De Luca too - but more than that, she has been my guide into a living language of vitality and depth. In other words, her writing has enriched my life.”
