Brought together to celebrate the anniversary of his birth this is the first time
the poems of John Angus have been available since they appeared in ‘A Glen Anthology’
- now long out of print.
Edited by his son Niall, it includes his much loved poem
‘Genesis’ written about his beloved Glenesk, and ‘Auld Donald’s Prayer’ as well as
less well-known ones such as ‘The Peesies’ and ‘A Cailleach’.
The collection is copiously illustrated throughout with colour
plates of favourite views of Glenesk taken by accomplished
photographer David Elder - as well as some black and white images taken by John Angus
It is to be hoped that his poems will now find a whole new audience in addition
to those who remember him with great affection as a member of the group of now legendary
Angus Poets who had their roots in the Scottish Literary Renaissance.
Taken as a whole ‘Glenesk’ makes an ideal memento of the
area which will be of interest to visitors and local people
