An extended sequence of poems moves from personal memory to reflections on the values embodied in such cultural father-figures as David Livingstone and the Irish patriot Roger Casement. Translations of poems by Paul Celan and others into vivid Scots illuminate the disturbing connections between patriarchy and twentieth-century violence. In contrast, moving and humorous 'dissections' of adult relationships evoke images of the body both scientific and spiritual."--Jacket." ;
