Description

Edwin Morgan is one of Scotland's most distinguished and popular poets. His celebration of his native city brought him the honour of Glasgow Poet Laureate, and in 2004 the Scottish Executive recognised him officially, as Scotland's first modern national poet, with the title of Scots Makar. Each poem here is read by Edwin Morgan, followed by informed and accessible commentary by Professor Roderick Watson of the University of Stirling. This CD is an excellent tool for classroom study, as well as giving listeners a chance to hear some of Scotland's best-loved poems read by the author himself.
