The Seed Beneath The Snow: Remembering George Mackay Brown Joanna Ramsey Author
Shop on Barnes & Noble


This tender and personal memoir by poet Joanna Ramsey gives an account of the last eight years in the life of George Mackay Brown, one of the greatest Scottish poets of the 20th century. It also provides a background to his poem 'A New Child: ECL 11 June 1993,' which he wrote for Joanna's daughter. There are many small details of George's day to day life in those last years that are not included in any other account. In his final years George Mackay Brown rarely traveled beyond Stromness, Scotland, but many of his friends visited him there; this book paints a portrait of a man who remained very dear and important to others until his death and beyond it.
