From his early opposition to poetry in Scots to the triumphant use of dialect in Sangschaw; from these exquisite lyrics to the long dynamic poems A Drunk Man Looks at the Thistle and To Circumjack Cencrastus; from the abandonment of Scots to the glacial, 'scientific' English of the unassembled Mature Art - most critics have limited themselves to a single phase of MacDiarmid's career. This study attempts, in his own phrase, to 'circumjack' or 'fully explicate' a troubling but brilliant author. Examining his earliest work, Herbert posits a symbolic structure which governs all MacDiarmid's periods, as well as explaining his need for ceaseless change. MacDiarmid emerges as a modernist of international stature, but also as a radical experimenter whose work anticipates post-modernist concerns."@en ;
