About the event

Robin Robertson at the Edinburgh International Book Festival. Too Cold for Snow / And Yet it Snows. Passionate, honest and remorseless, Robertson's poems capture a deep identification with the Scottish landscape, while also betraying a sense of alienation and sometimes desperation. He tells macabre stories of jealousy and murder; of mythology and decay, always with a forlorn intensity that has the hairs on the back of your neck standing. Bask in a joyfully bleak hour with one of our finest poets. Tickets: £10.00, £8.00. Visit:
