Description

This is a detailed study of one of Britain's most popular and internationally recognized poets. Edwin Morgan's work is widely taught in schools, his translations of European poets are particularly popular and he has been an influential critic for many years. In this book 12 critical essays cover all aspects of his original poetry as well as giving insights into his life. Robert Crawford writes on Morgan's diverse poetry; Robyn Marsack places him in an international perspective; Iain Crichton Smith examines Morgan's public and sometimes painfully private poetic voices, while Kevin McCarra relates Morgan's sonnets, and W.N.Herbert and Marshall Walker look at his experimentation and his science fictions respectively. Jack Rillie, Peter McCarey and Robin Hamilton examine his prose, his translations and his role as a teacher, while Geddes Thomson discusses how Morgan's poetry can be taught in schools. The book concludes with the first extensive bibliography of Morgan's work.show more
