    This work features a vibrant selection of the best Scottish love poems, with each poet limited to one poem excepting Burns himself, that spans centuries and feelings of affection and desire. These poems explore many different kinds of love: sexual, passionate, romantic, parental.

    In 100 Favourite Scottish Love Poems traditional Scottish verse mixes with great literature as Bonny Barbara Allan and Jock o' Hazeldean rub shoulders with Byron and Hogg. Modern Scottish writing from some of the most inspiring poets of our time, MacCaig, MacDiarmid, Morgan and Carol Ann Duffy, contrasts with Gaelic poetry by Sorley MacLean, Derick Thomson and Meg Bateman.

    Poems of first love, yearning for love, love in absence and epernal love are not grouped thematically, as in so many other anthologies, but seamlessly so that contrasting poems can strike sparks off one another, across the page - often with wit and jollity - to demonstrate that we experience love in individual and inspiring ways.
