Morgan was one of the most significant (and best-loved) Scottish poets of the later 20th century. He taught Trocchi in Glasgow in the late 1940’s, knew him later in Paris, and described him as magnetic and erratic. Trocchi continued to send Morgan everything he published. Finlay was a friend as well as a colleague in the world of concrete poetry. Heaney visited the 85-year-old Morgan to pay homage to him.
