Selected poems by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Far more than in his famous novels, it was in verse that Robert Louis Stevenson felt able to give direct expression to his deepest feelings about friendship, love, and nostalgia. Fascinated by a wide variety of verse techniques, Stevenson produced superb work in styles ranging from folk ballads to witty conversational offerings for his friends. Pieces using the stanza form and dialect of Robert Burns rank among the most attractive poetry in the Scots tradition. Also featured here are many uncollected poems, substantial extracts from the published collections, and the complete A Child's Garden of Verses, an extraordinarily evocative picture of childhood loneliness, visions, and fears

Revolving culture : notes from the Scottish republic by Angus Calder( Book )

7 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The period since the 1707 Treaty of Union with England has seen a nation with a quite distinct and independent identity, and it is no surprise that the decaying imperial state to its south, lumbered with anachronistic institutions and byzantine class distinctions, has latterly held little allure. Calder's writings on 'republican' Scotland are lively and insightful, and raise questions about nationalism and the future of the 'United' Kingdom in ways that cannot now be ignored
