Read full description of the books:



In 1937, Louis MacNeice and his friend Nancy visited the Hebrides. Following loosely in the footsteps of Johnson and Boswell, MacNeice describes with distinctive candor the people, customs and landscapes of the Hebrides. Alienated from the way of life he encountered in the islands yet utterly fascinated by it, MacNeice provides a unique insight into a now vanished culture and, as such, creates a fascinating social historical document of Scottish rural life in the late 1930s.

Read information about the author

Ebook I Crossed the Minch read Online! Born to Irish parents in Belfast, MacNeice was largely educated in British prep schools. He attended Oxford University, there befriending W.H. Auden.

He was part of the generation of "thirties poets" which included W. H. Auden, Stephen Spender and Cecil Day-Lewis; nicknamed "MacSpaunday" as a group — a name invented by Roy Campbell, in his Talking Bronco (1946). His body of work was widely appreciated by the public during his lifetime, due in part to his relaxed, but socially and emotionally aware style. Never as overtly (or simplistically) political as some of his contemporaries, his work shows a humane opposition to totalitarianism as well as an acute awareness of his Irish roots.
