Article on War Poets' Corner Scotland

WITH just over three months to go to the end of the centenary commemorations of the First World War, it has been announced that a monument to Scotland’s poets of that war is to be erected in Edinburgh’s Makars’ Court.

Lines selected from six poems by six different poets will be presented to the public to decide which quote is to be carved on the monument, a Celtic cross that incorporates in its design a pen.

The monument will be unveiled at a special ceremony in mid-November. The cross will be the first standing monument in Makars’ Court, where tributes are usually inscribed on paving slabs.
