The Glasgow Poets19-01-2016

For a century and a half the Glasgow poets have poured forth a stream of minstrelsy, gay with humour, tender with pathos, fierce with invective, riotous with mirth as rich as it is varied, and as brilliant as it is full of character and is sincere. Each of the long train has given his share some song, at least, that cannot be forgotten to enrich the nation's treasury. The birthplace of Campbell and Motherwell and Henry Glassford Bell, and the home of John Mayne and James Grahame, Alexander Rodger and George Outram, William Miller, Alexander Smith, and David Gray, with some two score other singers of note, Glasgow has no need to solicit respect for her tale of poetic achievement.
