Edwin Morgan’s Second Life

Episode 1: A Second Life

February 11, 2021

Through Edwin Morgan's 1968 poem The Second Life, writer Ishbel McFarlane explores his life and loves, as well as her own experiences as a new mum.

The 1960s were a time of change for Glasgow and for Morgan. As the slums came down, Morgan found love. The appearance of John Scott in his life transformed his work and his world, as surely as the motorways and New Towns were transforming Scotland.

In 2020, Ishbel is navigating her own second life, finding joy, struggle and change.
