Portuguese-Scottish Poetry in Translation
Translation was fundamental to Edwin Morgan’s work as a poet. Thanks to the Edwin Morgan Trust, that commitment to bringing the voices of foreign cultures into English and Scots remains possible. Here we welcome three acclaimed Portuguese poets - Andreia Faria, Ricardo Marques, Miguel Martins - who have worked closely with Edwin Morgan Prize-winning poet Jane McKie, runner-up Miriam Nash, and Whitbread Poetry Prize-shortlisted Richard Price to create new renderings of their poems for a Scottish context.
