Centenary Selected Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Centenary Selected Poems Paperback / softback

Edited by Hamish Whyte

Paperback / softback

Description

This is the third Selected Poems by Edwin Morgan from Carcanet, but the first since 2000 and the first to cover the full range of his poetry from his first collection in 1952 to his last in 2010, the year of his death at the age of ninety.

All his different voices speak here - animals, inanimate objects, dramatic monologues by people, (famous people, unknown people and imaginary people) - in a multitude of forms and styles - sonnets, science fiction, concrete, sound, his own invented stanzas - together with his evocations of place, especially his home city of Glasgow, and a wide selection of his deservedly famous love poems.

They all illustrate his incurable curiosity and a kind of relentless optimism for humanity.
