In 10 original chapters, leading literary critics and writers discuss the social, historical and personal dimensions of Paterson's poetry and prose.A critical introduction and an interview with Don Paterson clearly situate his work in dialogue with the Modernist, movement, contemporary and theoretical voices that inform it. The book shows that Paterson is a figure who actively negotiates his place within literary history, as well as confrontingthat history with lyric grace, humour and directness.
