Hugh MacDiarmid [pseud.] : Red Scotland

'About 3.30, C.M.G. came striding in, resplendent in full Highland rig-out ... He had a number of MSS with him and read part of his "Red Scotland", which sounded quite convincing. As he read, he supported himself at an angle over my table, the angle increased with the reading until he was literally dropping cigarette ash and dialectical materialism all about me. I thought it might relieve the congestion if he removed his plaid - but discovered that it was part of the regalia.'

Century: 1900-1945     Reader/Listener/Group: Christopher Murray Grieve      Manuscript: Unknown
