From the Publisher:

A Painted Field – Robin Robertson’s first collection – was published in 1997 to unanimous acclaim. In language both sensuous and coolly forthright, the poems in Slow Air describe the arc of loss, the search for grace, and the radiances and shadows of the natural world – the work pitching its embattled romanticism, its lyric weight, against fear, grief and erasure.

‘The best new poet in Britain is Robin Robertson’ Andrew O’HaganIndependent on Sunday Books of the Year

‘A poetic voice of quiet yet charged maturity: lyrical and complex, transparent and gravid, it can treat both the public theme and the intensely personal with the same serenely wrought fire’ William BoydScotsman Books of the Year

‘Robin Robertson is a master of the poetic line; this is wonderful work, at once muscular and delicate, ringing with a plangent, bitter music. A marvellous debut’ John Banville
