Sang fur the Wandert, or Song for the Lost by Janet Paisley


sang fur the wandertSang fur the Wandert, or Song for the Lost, is the sixth collection of poetry from the award-winning author, playwright and poet, Janet Paisley.

Written in both Scots and English, with some works rendered in both languages, the poems included here focus on Scotland and the world, touching upon personal and international events from as far back as year 542 to the present day. They explore the dramatic effects that politics, education, sociology, science, war and trauma can have on the individual.

This volume is a worthy addition to an already powerful and highly acclaimed body of work from Janet Paisley.

A remarkable, complex literary journey.

These stories are great. This book is an instant classic.
