THE WRONG MUSIC

THE POEMS OF OLIVE FRASER, 1909 - 77.

PUBLISHED BY CANONGATE PUBLISHING, 1989

Foreword,
The publication of this volume affords an unusual delight, the discovery of a new voice in Scottish, indeed in British poetry. Here the best of a life's work in poetic creation is offered all at once, by far the greater part of it printed for the first time - surely an unusual circumstance. It is twelve years since Oliver Fraser died. She would have been eighty years old this January.

How did it come about that a hoard of outstanding poetry remained unknown?

She was early a prizewinner in poetic contest at Aberdeen University and at Cambridge for English verse, and for Scots verse she won a high award in the National Contest in 1951 for lyric and for verse drama, But ill health, insidious from her student days on, then shattering experiences under wartime fire culminated in mental illness and many years in hospital care.

With this went persistent crippling poverty. It is small wonder that her poetry, which she continued to write under miserable or agonising conditions, reached publication very seldom, now here, now there, and on occasions many years apart.
