A selection of works from the Edwin Morgan Archive.
From Glasgow to Saturn presents a selection of items from the Scottish Poetry Library’s recently acquired Edwin Morgan Archive. Edwin Morgan, now aged 89, is Scotland’s National Poet.
The title of his 1973 collection, From Glasgow to Saturn, suggests the extensive range of his poetry. The Edwin Morgan Archive is the most significant collection of his work in print and other media and includes books, periodicals, magazines, newspapers, audio-visual material, poster poems, as well as the poet’s desk, chair, and typewriter.
This exhibition will include early and unusual editions, handwritten notes and corrections by the poet, ephemera, and a chance to view rare items such as Morgan’s Colour Poems. An opportunity to gain an insight into this great poet’s publishing history. Curated by Julie Johnstone.
