Events and Notable Dates

2014 Diary

  • 2014 Mar 25 - Soutar Talk, Perth Burns Club President's Night, Salutation Hotel, 7:30pm
  • 2014 Apr 24 - Soutar Birthday, William Soutar and Hugh MacDiarmid, Dr Paul Barnaby, Soutar Theatre, A K Bell Library, 7:30pm
    An illustrated talk by Dr Paul Barnaby based on the treasure trove of Soutar manuscripts held by Edinburgh University Library and the many items of Soutar interest in the universityís Hugh MacDiarmid Archive. MacDiarmid was Soutarís friend, the mentor who published some of his earliest poems. Yet when he edited a posthumous edition of Soutarís Collected Poems, he underplayed Soutarís true significance. Drawing on more than 30 letters from Soutar to MacDiarmid (some featuring pen-and-ink caricature sketches of MacDiarmid), Dr Barnaby will explore the argumentative friendship between the two poets, shedding new light on why MacDiarmid dealt such a damaging blow to Soutarís literary reputation.
