The Poetry of Hugh MacDiarmid

By (author) Alan Riach

Hugh MacDiarmid (born Christopher Murray Grieve) is a huge, and still controversial, figure in modern Scottish literature. Called variously “the most important figure in Scottish life in the twentieth century” and “a symbol of all that’s perfectly hideous in Scotland”, his poetry is of historic, and national, significance. Alan Riach’s SCOTNOTE study guide outlines MacDiarmid’s life and work, providing an overview of the poet’s beliefs, opinions and influences, for senior school pupils and students at all levels.
