Edwin Morgan commemorated at Glasgow University

27th August 2010

Mourners gathered to commemorate the life of Scottish poet Edwin Morgan at the writer's funeral yesterday (August 26th).

Selections of Morgan's work were read out during the ceremony at the University of Glasgow's Bute Hall, with fellow Scottish author Liz Lochhead among those who attended the event.

The achievements of Morgan, who was an English professor at the university, were celebrated by its principal and vice-chancellor professor Anton Muscatelli ahead of the service.

He remarked that Morgan's 'contribution to poetry and the arts in Scotland and beyond is huge and he will be fondly remembered by a great many people'.

Morgan, who composed collections such as Cathures and A Book of Lives, died earlier this month at the age of 90.

In an obituary published by the Daily Telegraph, Morgan was described as having an 'attractive energy' with his work not easily confined to a single category.
