This collection includes Robertson's version of Ovid, "The Flaying of Marsyas", and "Camera Obscura", in which he uses the imagined diary of David Octavius Hill, counterpointed by a narrative of the city of Edinburgh, to portray a life in crisis and the last flowering of the Scottish enlightenment.
