    MacDiarmid, Hugh

    Hugh MacDiarmid (C.M. Grieve) (1892 – 1978)  was Scotland’s most influential and controversial writer in the 20th century. He urged and enabled the regeneration of all aspects of Scotland’s literature and culture through his poetry, polemical writing and political activity. A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle (1926) is generally regarded as Scotland’s masterpiece of modernism.   (Taken from http://www.scottishpoetrylibrary.org.uk/poetry/poets/hugh-macdiarmid, where readers can find more about this poet)
