Norman MacCaig

For some reason this video won't embed but the link below works a treat. Nice vignette about the Scottish poet Norman McCaig. I'm new to his work and already in awe. I recently read one of his poems about gannets and I just had to read it again and again and again; drinking in its brilliance. A rare and wonderful treat. Each reading blowing me away with its still fresh language, genius line breaks and imagery that is at once subtle and powerful. This video proves his brilliance!
