- Mon 22 Aug 14:15 - 15:15
- Northside Theatre
Attend in person
In the 100 years since Hugh MacDiarmid first appeared in print, the poet’s reputation has soared and dived: was he the greatest cultural revolutionary in modern Scotland or the symbol of everything hideously wrong with the nation? Join researcher Fiona Paterson, poet and scholar Alan Riach and novelist James Robertson in a contentious conversation. Disagreements are predicted, consensus is unlikely and a love of great poetry is high on the agenda.
