Containing poems written by Edwin Morgan during the past six years, this collection looks at human life from a variety of perspectives, encompassing a range of themes, the foremost of which is history. This new work displays the author's characteristic willingness to experiment with a variety of subjects, from the history of cancer to the new Scottish parliament.read more
And I also read through Edwin Morgan's new collection of poetry A Book of Lives today as well, though I expect I will be returning to dip in and out of it again for the next wee while (it's cos I knew the new volume was coming out that I've been rereading some of the older ones recently). I've read about half of the poems collected in here before, but there is the usual mix from Morgan, who easily proves again why he is one of my favourite poets.read more
