Acknowledgements
In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

xi Acknowledgements The volume editor would like to thank Alasdair Gray for permission to reproduce his portrait of Edwin Morgan on the cover of this book. Thanks also to the Andrew Tannahill Fund for the Furtherance of Scottish Literature at Glasgow University, which helped make this possible. The painting was commissioned by the Saltire Society in association with the Scottish Arts Council in recognition of a lifetime’s achievement, and awarded to Edwin Morgan in 2003. It is now held by the Hunterian Art Gallery at Glasgow University. The Department of Scottish Literature at Glasgow University covered the cost of the index, made by Stewart Sanderson: my thanks to both. Most of all, I would like to record my thanks to the maestro, Morgan himself, for his deft encouragements, unfailing generosities and lasting friendship. Mektub. THIS PAGE INTENTIONALLY LEFT BLANK ...
