Martin MacIntyre's first collection of poetry rejoices in the passion and vitality of human experience, showing a detailed observance of emotion. He draws inspiration from the past whilst emphasising the continuity and contemporising of tradition, which confronts and often consoles his concerns over the inevitable passing of time. The reader is left with a sense of finding comfort and affirmation in the richness of everyday experience.
Martin MacIntyre was winner of the 2003 Saltire Scottish First Book of the Year Award with Ath-Aithne and was shortlisted for the 2005 Saltire Scottish Book of the Year with Gymnippers Diciadain.
