Banned Books Club: Edwin Morgan's Stobhill Sequence
The Project Cafe
Glasgow United Kingdom
Share this event:

Edwin Morgan was the first Scots Makar, and previously Glasgow's Poet Laureate. He was an important voice in the Scottish Renaissance, but despite his stature, he was no stranger to controversy. In the early 90s a sequence of his poems dealing with rape and abotion, Stobhill, were the subject of a campaign to have them banned. Campaigners demanded the poems be removed from schools because they were "pornographic and licentious".

The book group discussion will focus on the ideas behind the poems and the attempted censorship of his work. It will be led by Claire Askew, a poet and feminist and recently the runner-up for the 2014 Edwin Morgan Poetry Prize.
