Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pocketbooks is a collaborative publishing program uniting galleries, publishers, artists, writers, poets, and more from around the world in a series of small, beautifully designed, and collectable paperback books. The fifteen planned volumes in the series will be published over the next two years. When complete they will provide a compendium of art forms and ideas offering a generalist vision of contemporary culture at the start of the twenty-first century.<P>This anthology was compiled by asking fifty poets to select their favorite love poem and write a poem of their own in response. The contributors, writing in English, Gaelic, and Scots, include Andrew Greig, Meg Bateman, Stewart Conn, Valerie Gilles, Robin Robertson, Robert Crawford, Kate Clanchy, and Rody Gorman.

Synopsis:

The term "without day" refers to the "adjournment" of the final sitting of the Scottish Parliament in 1707 to some future but unspecified date, ""sine die"" -(without day). "Without Day" was an open competition, with information circulated across Scotland and internationally, inviting proposals for artworks, performances and other interventions relating to the new Scottish parliament. One hundred contributions are included from writers, artists and architects, whose number include Douglas Gordon, Robert Crawford, David Bellingham, Ian Stephen, Richard Price, herman de vries, Tom Pow, Halla Beloff, Gael Turnbull and Pavel Buchler among others. The fact that these proposals are "without day" and will never be realized has allowed imaginations to take flight, and the resultant provocations, critiques, and utopias provide a springboard into Scotland's postdevolution and postmillennial future. "Without Day" comes with a mini-CD of a new audio work by William Furlong, comprising recordings made around Scotland on May 6, 1999 -the day of the first elections to the new Scottish parliament -in which people discuss their aspirations, hopes, and dreams for the future.
