T. S. Law Centenary

To mark 100 years since the birth of T. S. Law, the collection Away, Yeegie Landscapes has been released here. This collection was composed between August 1988 and March 1990, but until now has never been published in full. It discusses T. S. Law's childhood and some of the influences that shaped his development as a poet.

During the month of October 2016, the National Library of Scotland exhibited both published and unpublished manuscripts by T. S. Law in two of the display cases in their main hall.
