Supplemental Materials

What is included with this book?


Drawing upon a pioneering filmmaker's poetry collections, short stories, magazine articles, and unpublished notebooks, this collection contains the full range of Margaret Tait's writing. As it discusses Tait as filmmaker and writer in the context of mid-20th-century Scottish culture, this account offers valuable insights into her writing processes and how these might have translated into her film work. With poetry that is generous and independent in its vision of the world, this book will appeal to anyone interested in the crossovers between literature and film.
