Edwin Morgan Book Club

This event is cancelled as we are currently closed due to the coronavirus crisis.

Playful and profound, innovative and humane, Scottish poet Edwin Morgan’s work comes alive in our summer National Poetry Library Book Club.

In his centenary year, we celebrate the life and work of one of Scotland’s most admired poets.

Morgan’s work ranges across concrete poetry, sci-fi, dramatic monologues and intimate love poems.

Morgan said of poetry: ‘The only thing that matters is to be able to leave at least a few poems that will be remembered and read with pleasure, and who can guarantee that? – unless perhaps they are hammered into the fabric of the universe…’

We look at five of our favourite Morgan poems and hammer them into space and time.
