Scotia Extremis is a new poetry anthology based on the celebrated 2016–17 web project edited by Andy Jackson and Brian Johnstone.
It presents a poetic exploration of ‘the soul of Scotland’ featuring specially commissioned poems from over 100 of the nation’s finest contemporary poets including Jackie Kay, Douglas Dunn, Christine De Luca and Stewart Conn.
Poems examine extremes of Scotland’s psyche, covering themes as diverse as Burns night, buckfast and the Bay City Rollers. A fastpaced roll-call of your favourite poets maps the nation in words, accompanied by visuals and the occasional snatch of music.
