Overview

Every Emotion: Hebridean Poetry by George Carle

Sample the magic of the Hebrides and share the emotions and insights of the doctor-poet George Carle in this, his first poetry collection. It seems strange for a medical doctor of 46 to suddenly find poetry—but this is exactly what happened to George Carle. His marriage broke up and his wife left suddenly, taking his two dear children with her. Living on a remote and isolated island intensified his sadness and he required treatment for depression. During this illness he started to write poetry which ranges through a wide spectrum of human experience—from the anguish of separation, love, religion, death; and yet these epiphanies of human experience, often charged with emotion, are made more poignant through the oblique touches of humour.
