"Poets and The Nation"


Radio Scotland is airing a three-part series on Scottish poetry called “Poets and The Nation” on Mondays from 11:30 to 12:00. You can listen online from the features page (I assume each programme is available for the standard seven days after broadcast). The first instalment, which was broadcast Monday this week, explored how Scottish poets have engaged with the land and landscape. The half-hour format inevitably makes for a pretty sketchy, whistle-stop exploration of the entire history of even a particular aspect of Scottish poetry in Gaelic, Scots and English, but it’s heartening to find a reasonably serious series about poetry on the radio.
