Moder Dy: Mother Wave

Regular price £10.99

Before the compass, there was the moder dy - the mother wave. Roseanne Watt's debut collection is a poetry of undercurrents, preoccupied with the question of what it means to return somewhere: to memory, to place, to a state of being. At the centre of this lies the poet's home archipelago of Shetland: its tidal pull and push, its wild beast and landscape of old and new lights. 

Written in both English and her native Shetlandic, Moder Dy is a collection where you are never too far from the sea.

Roseanne Watt was winner of the Edwin Morgan Poetry Award 2018
