Newspoems postcard from Edwin Morgan

 

More about this item


Dear Hamish

The LINES came today, so I pass it on to you. The other item is – is it not? – my first book of 1987 (the Newspoems 'done rough', showing their origin, an example of 'dirty realism' perhaps) – and how you will describe it I'm not sure – each copy has the contents in a different order, including the titlepage, which may in fact come at the beginning, but I thought you'd prefer one of the more eccentric ones! Do you think these poems would mix with the otherwise fairly straightforward contents of the next Carcanet book (cleaned up and clearly printed, of course), or should they remain in the Wacy! ghetto?

Best, Eddie

The 'newspoems' were included in "the next Carcanet book", Themes on a Variation, and also in Morgan's Collected Poems (Carcanet, 1990).
