National Poetry Day 2012
Posted October 3, 2012 6:05 pm by Nicola Stratton
Today is National Poetry Day! To celebrate, the National Library of Scotland has produced a set of web pages featuring poems from the pamphlets shortlisted for the 2012 Callum Macdonald Memorial Award. Each page includes poetry from the shortlisted pamphlet, along with biographical information about the poet.
We hope that you enjoy the quality and variety of poetry on offer at our National Poetry Day 2012 web pages. There are poems in Scots, Gaelic, and English, and the subject matter covers a variety of topics, from Hadrian’s Wall to the Museum of Anatomy at the University of Glasgow. Thank you to the poets and publishers who allowed us to use their work.
If you would like to read poetry from other years, please take a look at our previous National Poetry Day web pages.
