This was an intermediary but vital period of cultural change. The young Scottish poets of the late sixties (including D.M. Black, Alan Jackson, Kenneth White; Robin Fulton, and the first appearances of Tom Leonard and Liz Lochhead) heralded this new spirit –very much of its time– and took us beyond the familiar arguments for and against the use of Scots, beyond the Renaissance agendas of national psychology and identity.
