"August 11th 1892: Birth of Scottish Poet Hugh MacDiarmid" Dylan Thomas on Hugh MacDiarmid

We remember the late Scottish Poet Hugh MacDairmid today on his birthday - we will always defend him against the  scurrilous attacks like those of George Galloway here.

We have the same feelings for our comrade Hugh MacDairmid that Dylan Thomas had expressed beautifully in the statement above and we remember him today on his birthday.

Yr Aflonyddwch Mawr shares the same socialist social vision has Dylan Thomas here.

Hugh MacDiarmid began his writing career as a journalist in Wales contributing to the socialist newspaper The Merthyr Pioneer run by Labour party founder Keir Hardie which probably accounts for our close feeling of kinship with him.
