This volume concludes the corrected text of the almost 1500 pages of Hugh MacDiarmid's Complete Poems, with a volume including the full texts of In Memoriam James Joyce (1955), Three Hymns to Lenin (1957), The Kind of Poetry I Want (1961) and much else: long poems and intense lyrics, ephemera and polemics, with appendices of early poems omitted from the first volume.
Praise for Hugh MacDiarmid 'Watch him, an angel's set his tongue on fire.'
'Lord God, this fellow is a poet, singing a song even when pain seizes him, or the woe of the world murmurs in his heart'
'Every door in any town should be wide open to that great lyric poet Hugh MacDiarmid.'
'These great people like MacDiarmid are a bit scary, '
Liz Lochhead 'Riach has done Scottish literature a great service in masterminding the Carcanet edition of the works of Hugh MacDiarmid...'
