Kenneth Steven takes us on Columba's difficult journey from Ireland to the west coast of Scotland. He takes us on many other journeys too - both real and imagined, ancient and modern. Columba's journey becomes a metaphor for embarking on journeys of many sorts and from many kinds of shores.
Simple, Powerful, Spiritual.
'...enjoying [Kenneth Steven's work] intensely - style and subject.' -- Ted Hughes '...this poet is a worthy successor to such greats as George Mackay Brown, Iain Crichton Smith and Norman MacCaig ... he celebrates Scotland past and present without the least trace of sentimentality.' The Scots Magazine
