The Scottish Ambassador cropped book cover

Professor Robert Crawford from the School of English celebrates the publication of his latest collection of poetry, The Scottish Ambassador. In this book he, as ever, advocates for the culture, landscape, and people of Scotland, and draws upon Greek, Chinese, and Zoroastrian traditions with great lyrical energy. Spanning the intimate and the public, the local and the international, this is a book that, faces and embraces the world.

Robert is the author of many collections and biographies—including 2014's Testament and Young Eliot—and has edited many volumes, including The Penguin Book of Scottish Verse and The Book of St Andrews.

The book is published by Cape.
