SPL Newsletter no. 35

More about this item

The back page of this issue of the Scottish Poetry Library newsletter features Edwin Morgan's poem 'At Eighty' and an advert for the pamphlet in which it had been recently published, Unknown Is Best: A Celebration of Edwin Morgan at Eighty (SPL/Mariscat, 2000). A small article describes Morgan's 80th birthday party at the Kibble Palace, a giant glasshouse in Glasgow's Botanic Gardens.

"There was music by Tommy Smith, readings by Ron Butlin, Tom Leonard, Liz Lochhead and Gael Turnbull, and the presentation of a book of poems [Unknown is Best] in his honour, under the joint imprint of his long-time publisher, bibliographer and friend, Hamish Whyte at the Mariscat Press, and his first-time publishers but no less long-standing admirers, the Scottish Poetry Library."
