Poetry Archive: Scotland
This Special Collection brings together some of the recordings we’ve made over the years with poets from Scotland. Edwin Morgan recorded his reading for the Archive in his flat in Glasgow back in 2000, Douglas Dunn made his Archive recording in 2007, and Imtiaz Dharker came into our studio in 2010. In 2016 and 2017, funding from Creative Scotland has allowed us to extend the range of the work we can offer by poets from Scotland by inviting Anna Crowe, Christine De Luca, David Kinloch, Tom Pow and others to read their work for us.
We hope you will enjoy listening to this selection of poems written by Scottish poets. Each of the poet’s names below will also lead you to a full page about them and more examples of their work. And we’ll be adding more great Scottish voices as we record them.
