A bi-lingual collection of 40 poems, each in the original Shetlandic, along with a version in English. The poems will be selected from several of Christine De Luca’s collections along with some as yet unpublished poems.
Shetlandic is a unique ‘dialect’ or language, a blend of Old Scots with strong Norse vocabulary and sound; the most distinctive within Scotland. Nordic poets, when they hear it, describe it as a ‘cousin language’.
