Moder Dy
Moder Dy by Roseanne Watt (Polygon, 1988)

Winner of the 2018 Edwin Morgan Prize, this debut collection from Roseanne Watt, a filmmaker and musician from Shetland evokes landscape, nature all through a stunning blend of the rhythms of the languages of her background. ‘Even in the poems written entirely in English the lilt and the cadence of the Shetlandic moves behind everything, like the sea…in these profound, assured and wilfully spare poems’ (John Glenday)
