Strath is the latest book published by Easel Press. It contains Scots versions, by Robert Crawford, of Song Dynasty (960 - 1279) Chinese poems paired with black and white duotone photographs by Norman McBeath.The title, Strath, is the Scots word for a low sided valley often with a river running through it. Most of the poems have a rural setting, while several mention grassy plains or rivers. The photographs in Strath offer subtle points of contact between poem and image, with pictures hinting at delicacy and fleetingness, at weathering, withering and growth. Robert Crawford is Professor of Modern Scottish Literature at the University of St Andrews.
