    Like most Scots I first came across Edwin Morgan's poetry when taught it at school, but he was a poet I came back to again and again, and re-read in later life. His biography gives a context to the poetry and insights into the very private man written by someone obviously close to him, from family life, time in the army during WW2, university life and relationships through life - personal, professional and private. One minor irritation for me was the biographer defending the Catholic Church from Like most Scots I first came across Edwin Morgan's poetry when taught it at school, but he was a poet I came back to again and again, and re-read in later life. His biography gives a context to the poetry and insights into the very private man written by someone obviously close to him, from family life, time in the army during WW2, university life and relationships through life - personal, professional and private. One minor irritation for me was the biographer defending the Catholic Church from the quoted opinions of Morgan, from the author's own perspective when Morgan is no longer here to reply. It made me go back and re-read many of Edwin Morgan's poems with fresh insight and I would highly recommend this book.
