Issue: 96 - George Bruce: Poet 2000

A celebration of the life and work of George Bruce, now 91, whose electric energies still furiously produce new work, some of which appears here. George Gunn measures his achievement over many years and we reproduce two sensitive portraits by Colin Dunbar. Colin is Chapman’s first featured artist in a new regular venture. There are also appreciations of the neglected poet T S Law by his son John, and poet Tom Hubbard, plus unpublished work by TSL. David McVey provides an anarchic critique of Jane Austen as ‘socialist soccer-babe’, Doug Anderson looks at the poetry of John Burnside and there’s new work by him and Angus Calder, Linda Cracknell, Janet Paisley and others. Cover by John Bellany. 104 pp, 2000, ISBN-10: 0-906772-94-X / ISBN-13: 978-0-906772-94-2 £5.00
