About this title


A selection from 300 recently discovered poems by Hugh MacDiarmid, who 25 years after his death is still a dissenting voice, are presented in this collection. The power of derisive laughter and the poetic imagination to combat ignorance, prejudice, and stupidity are celebrated by MacDiarmid in these provocative poems on sexuality and marriage. Many of the poems satirize the hypocrisy of the church and bourgeois complacency and powerfully indict the brutality of imperialism and its consequences for war. Discovered by John Manson in the archives of the National Library of Scotland, this is the first time many of these poems have appeared in print.

About the Author:

Hugh MacDiarmid is the pen name of Christopher Murray Grieve. He is considered the father of the Scottish literary renaissance.
