Excerpt from Northern Numbers: Being Representative Selections From Certain Living Scottish Poets
His collection does not pretend to be in any sense anthology Of contemporary Scottish poetry. It merely consists of representative selections (chosen by the contributors themselv... es) from the - mainly current - work Of certain Scottish poets ofto-day - and to-morrow! Many contemporary writers Of the highest merit, whose work will unquestionably be given a place in any future anthology Of Scottish poetry embracing the output Of the twentieth century, have not been invited to contribute to this volume. The chief reason for that lies in the fact that for the most part the contributors to this volume are close personal friends, and that this is rather an experiment in group-publication than an anthology.
Group-poetry developments have been a marked feature Of recent British publishing. Success has largely justified the method. It is hoped that the present volume may do for some Of the leading tendencies in contemporary Scot tish poetry what the Georgian Poetry series has done for a particular group of mainly-english poets Of our period.
If this venture is sufficiently successful, subsequent volumes (which it is hoped will permit of the inclusion of poetical dramas as well) will be published at convenient intervals. N 0 new contributor will, however, be admitted without the approval Of a majority of the present group.
