Close Read: Fiona Paterson, Alan Riach & James Robertson on the Poetry of Hugh MacDiarmid

Christopher Murray Grieve, best known under his pseudonym Hugh MacDiarmid, produced some of the most influential (and savagely political) poetry of his time. Expect an engaging discussion, enjoyable for those with existing knowledge of MacDiarmid’s poetry and for newcomers to his work.
