A first collection of Poems in Scottish Gaelic from poet Marcas Mac an Tuairneir.

This book Deo (meaning breath) is written in Scottish Gaelic with English translations.

The Book has 7 sections, 43 poems all bilingual and 19 photos mostly by photographer Iain Ross.

Written with the support of the Gaelic Books Council and under their tutelage scheme, supervised by the Gaelic author and poet Martin MacIntyre.

"Deo explores the journeys of youth from many perspectives, taking inspiration from such places as Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Alicante, Ireland and his home city of York... The imagery in much of this poetry is strikingly beautiful and strong, taking inspiration from physical, emotional, erotic and even linguistic landscapes." Eile Magazine.

"I was privileged to be given a sneak preview of Marcus's work in progress over the last two years or so; you now have the pleasure collected here in 'Deo' and desirous of your active reading. These poems take us to many places, both physical and emotional, and they do so in carefully crafted apposite language. Fear, darkness and regret are there but also joy and hope and pursuit of a richer world. We often meet love. As is her wont, her capricious nature reveals anger, dissatisfaction, and bewilderment even, that she is not properly understood. She is also though capable of forgiveness, of falling head-over-heels, and does not conceal wonder at how deeply she has been stirred from placid repose." Martin MacIntyre.
