"I try to write something every day even though I am not writing poetry, just to get myself in touch with language."-Edwin Morgan

Edwin Morgan (1920-2010) is one of the giants of modern literature. Scotland's national poet from 2004 to his death, throughout his long life he produced an astonishing variety of work, from the playful to the profound.

Edwin Morgan: In Touch With Language presents previously uncollected prose - journalism, book and theatre reviews, scholarly essays and lectures, drama and radio scripts, forewords and afterwords - all carefully moulded to the needs of differing audiences. Morgan's writing fizzes with clarity and verve: the topics range from Gilgamesh to Ginsberg, from cybernetics to sexualities, from international literatures to the changing face of his home city of Glasgow. Everyone will find surprises and delights in this new collection.
