“I like very much the area of doubt and controversy in science. How far is it possible to say that new species keep appearing in the world in order to remind us that nothing is static, and that a sense of change is very important – I think that a lot of the poetry I’ve written has tried to emphasise that.”Edwin Morgan in interview with Russell Jones
