Oul Licht

Philip Robinson, born in Larne in 1946, spent his childhood in Boneybefore in east Antrim, and has lived for more than 30 years in the Ards Peninsula, county Down. He is the author of Ulster-Scots: A Grammar of the Traditional Written and Spoken Language as well as four Ulster-Scots ‘kail-yard’ novels. His poetry in this collection also explores the fast-disappearing ‘Old Light’ of his native Ulster-Scots community in whose language they are written. Oul Licht, and Other Ulster-Scots Poems is a window into that world – its language, humour, culture, religion and politics.
