A propos du livre :

Synopsis : This is a bewitching and atmospheric collection of short stories celebrating life and love: the world ripens as a baby stirs in its mother's womb; a soldier captured at Bannockburn sees the daughter of his jailor bathing and falls in love; two ghosts become reconciled with death; and, an eighteenth-century tale of piracy and treachery. George Mackay Brown's distinctive voice has a clarity and resonance that blends the magical with the mundane, and the present with the past.

About the Author: George Mackay Brown (1921-96) was one of the major Scottish literary figures of the twentieth century - a prolific poet and novelist, he took much of his inspiration from the myths and landscape of Orkney, and also from his deep Catholic faith. He was born in Orkney in 1921 and died there in 1996. Following his first book in 1954 he published many more, including plays, novels and poems. Sir Peter Maxwell Davies has set much of his work to music. In 1988 he was awarded the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for The Golden Bird. In 1994 his Beside the Ocean of Time was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and judged Book of the Year by the Saltire Society.

Description du livre Hogarth Press, London, 1976. Hard Cover. État : Good. Etat de la jaquette : Good. Davey, Patricia (illustrateur). First Edition. 268 pages. 440 grams. This book is in good ex-library condition with light associated markings and attachments. The dust jacket is in good condition currently enclosed in library protective sleeve. 'These superbly evocative stories by George Mackay Brown, centred on the people of the Orkneys, range widely in time and in theme. The strange and chequered romance between a young English prisoner of war and the daughter of his Scottish captor is set in the wake of Robert Bruce's victory at Bannockburn, while two related stories tell of mutiny and piracy in the early 18th century and a curious sequel in a Hamnavoe merchant's home. 'The Book Of Black Arts' is a chilling account of a chain of pacts with the devil, the prosperity thus attained and the price exacted, while 'A Winter Tale' records a half-glimpsed Nativity in modern times. The light humour of a fishy courtship in 'Silver' contrasts with the journey of a half-ghost across Brig-O-Dread, the little stone bridge that divides sea from loch, parish from parish, and brings him into 'an august mercilessly ordering of flames'. And perhaps most characteristic of the author's celebration of his chosen earth is 'Soldier from the Wars Retuning:' a revenant from the field of battle finst that life continues and the seed is sown no matter how the war has gone - and learns not to resent this overmastering fact. Here as elsewhere in this book is a potent mingling of legend and actuality, the workaday and the sacramental, the changes time brings and the ancient underlying rhythms of a people's spiritual life.' 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
