Once, there was a German Count called Iggleheim. An enlightened soul, who loved beauty above all else, he became alarmed when he heard about a prophecy predicting that a limitless flood would engulf the world on 20th February, 1524. Immediately, he ordered the construction of a three-storey ark on the Rhine…

At once poetic fable and almost-true story, the poems in Iggleheim’s Ark take inspiration from Iggleheim’s extravagant, ill-fated attempt to save his beloved paintings from an impending apocalypse.

David Kinloch was born, brought up and educated in Glasgow. The author of five full collections of poems, he is also a critic and scholar with many publications in the fields of French, Translation and Scottish Studies. He is a Trustee of The Edwin Morgan Trust and helped to set up the Scottish Writers’ Centre.
