The Vision of Cathkin Braes

or The Vision of Cathkin Braes and Other Poems, as it was originally called when it first appeared in 1952, published by William MacLellan, Glasgow, is a collection of six poems.
According to a note by EM in Poems of Thirty Years, Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1982, p. V, a companion volume called Dies Irae (see also: Collected Poems, Manchester: Carcanet Press, 1990, p. 15.) "was to have been published by Lotus Press in their Acadine Poets series, but when the series foundered through lack of finance, never appeared; it was intended as a complementary volume to The Vision of Cathkin Braes - rather like the tragic and comic masks of drama."
Dies Irae was finally published in Poems of Thirty Years, Manchester: Carcanet New Press, 1982, p. 3-24.

Contents:

The Vision of Cathkin Braes
A Courtly Overture
