About Mr and Mrs Scotland are Dead:

"Genius is no stranger to the work of Kathleen Jamie. With each successive theme to which Jamie turns her vision she brings the gift of insight and mystery...poetry of stunning clarity and musicality."

"With The Queen of Sheba Kathleen Jamie has produced the best individual collection of poems by a woman living in 20th century Scotland. The book establishes her eminence among Scottish poets of her generation. The precision and resource of her language have never been combined more impressively than here."
—Robert Crawford

"A deep lyricism married to intelligence and highly disciplined verse."
