About This Item

West Brattleboro, Vermont: Longhouse, 2017. pp 109 A collection of two line couplets inspired by Islamic poet Mirza Mohammad Ali Saeb (1590-1676). Robin MacGowan provides an fascinating introduction to Saeb's life and poetry. A fine paperback, inscribed "For Alasdair Gray and your ripostes to these witty scintillations, Robin Magowan 6.iv.18". Provenance: from the recent Glasgow dispersal sale of Alasdair Gray's library. Gray (1934-2019) is acknowledged as one of the most innovative figures in Scottish literature and culture. Painter, novelist, playwright, poet and editor, Gray frequently combined his diverse artistic talents within single works to challenge existing forms. He has been described as 'Blending satire and tragedy, realism and fantasy, his work has been credited with spurring a renaissance in Scottish literature.'
