Intimate Expanses is an anthology of twenty-five Scottish poems, one for each year from 1978 to 2002, published by the Scottish Poetry Library in collaboration with Carcanet Press. Containing a comprehensive, insightful introduction by Ken Cockburn, this unique book presents an alternative view of how the past quarter century has unfolded in Scotland. Poems range from the grand and historical to the quiet and the personal, and include sonnets, haiku and gargantuan list-poems, amongst other forms.
