Issue: 82 - Hamish Henderson’s Long March

One past outstanding success was No 42, a special feature on Hamish Henderson long since sold out. In No 82 we publish a fascinating selection from his letters, including to Hugh MacDiarmid, a survey he wrote on contemporary Scottish writing in the 50s, ‘Flower and Iron of the Truth’, discussed in a modern context by Angus Calder in ‘Scots Language in Transition’ and an examination of his role in the folk and literary revivals in ‘A River that Flows On’ by Alec Finlay. We also have a ‘new’ poem by Hugh MacDiarmid, poetry from John Purser of Scotland’s Music, Meg Bateman, Norman Kreitman, Ian McDonough and Elise Mackay; fiction by Leila Aboulela, Deborah Moffatt and William Graham, a moving tribute by Kathleen Raine to Tom Scott –and reviews prescient of all the Scottish book awards! 104 pp, 1995, ISBN-10: 0-906772-68-0 / ISBN-13: 978-0-906772-68-3 £5.00
