About the Author

Brian Murray read English at Glasgow University and was a teacher in the West of Scotland. With Archie Bevon he has been editing the unpublished and uncollected work of George Mackay Brown -- seven volumes to date, with an eighth just completed. Like his daughter Rowena, he was a long-term friend of the writer.


'Extraordinarily effective' -- Robert McCrum, The Observer 'A brilliant writer' -- Spectator 'George Mackay Brown really does possess the magician's touch' -- Observer 'A dazzling writer' -- The Guardian 'Undoubtedly the most important document of his work to be produced so far.' -- Shetland Times, Malachy Tallack. 'George Mackay Brown has added uniquely and steadfastly to the riches of poetry in English: his sense of the world and his way with words are powerfully at one with each other' -- Seamus Heaney 'The Collected Poems show the range and depth of his work, the beauty of it, "the undersong of terrible holy joy"' -- Scotsman 20050730 'The reader embarks on a voyage -- which is how Mackay Brown himself saw his work -- through the elemental world of his cliff-girt, craggy isles.' -- The Times, Rachel Campbell-Johnston 20050730 'Practically every poem has the bite of originality' -- TLS 20050812 'Mackay Brown was a bardic, celebratory poet who swathed all that he wrote about in a kind of caul of sacredness' -- Independent, Michael Glover 20051202 'A must-have... [Mackay Brown] transforms the mundane with a luminous lyricism' -- The Times, Rachel Campbell-Johnston 20051203 'The work has both a severe beauty and mischievous wit' -- The Sunday Times 20051203
