Abstract:

"In The Queen of Sheba, the traveller comes home. These are poems of Scotland and beyond. Kathleen Jamie celebrates the good and challenges the outdated, exploring new mixes of culture and language. There are poems about landscape and nationhood, sex and politics, women and men. There is love and exasperation, hope and poverty. At times darker than her earlier work, the poems of The Queen of Sheba are rich with life and boldly self-aware."--Jacket.
