The premature death of Sydney Goodsir Smith at the age of fifty-nine, while this volume of his Collected Poems was in production, deprived the world of one of the major personalities in twentieth-century British literature. The poems included in this volume, mostly written in Scots dialect - from 'Skail Wind', first published in 1941, to the moving poems of his maturity and the gentle, philosophical poems of his later years - show us the journey of a man who understood the world only too well. Collected Poems contains everything that the author wished to preserve and be remembered for, as well as a personal introduction by Smith's old friend and poet Hugh MacDiarmid.
