Norman MacCaig


Scottish poet known for A Circular of Applause and various other collections of basic, humorous poems. Through the 1970s and 1980s, he received both Queen’s Yellow metal Medal for Poetry as well as the Cholmondeley Award. He was a pacifist and a conscientious objector through the Globe War II period and was broadly criticized for his sights. His early literary function was inspired by the brand new Apocalypse Movement from the 1930s and ’40s. He was created and elevated in the town of Edinburgh, Scotland. His mother’s Scottish Highland and Gaelic root base greatly inspired his personal and literary advancement. He cited poet John Donne as a significant literary influence.
