Hugh MacDiarmid - A Celebration

  • The Saltire Society 9 Fountain Close, 22 High Street Edinburgh EH1 1TF (map)

It has been said that Hugh MacDiarmid (1892-1978) was 'the single most powerful cultural force in 20th century Scotland, a great poet, a revolutionary thinker, a political extremist, a social liability and a solitary introvert, and while public familiarity with his work has waxed and waned, nevertheless his influence continues, incalculably deep and long-lasting.'

A performed reading by Dolina MacLennan and Alan Riach.

Free entry, donations welcome. Booking is essential, please RSVP to saltire@saltiresociety.org.uk
