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.

Kenneth Steven

Over the past 20 years, Kenneth Steven has become one of the country's most popular poets. Drawing on a quiet Celtic spirituality and a love of wild Scotland, his engaging poetry offers us something beautiful, evocative, moving and captivating. He is also a highly successful broadcaster, featuring regularly on national radio. His BBC Radio 4 documentary on the island of St Kilda won him a prestigious Sony Award.

'...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
