PRE:Idea given to him in 1926 by Francis George Scott, Scottish composer, who also helped to shape the finished work.

Difficulties of writing long poem in the 20th century, but solved by stringing lyrics on to a poetic framework.

Poem has had long history of success, helped by some of Scott's settings, and experience helped him in his later work.

Not satisfied he has achieved all he can and is still learning and experimenting.

PRE:Unpopularity of Easterhouse among its inhabitants a criticism of the way it is run.

Corporation unconcern has led to its people losing interest.

Few amenities - no cafe or public library, and recreational facilities, apart from those run by the church, practically non-existent.

A complex of houses rather than a community, which is in danger of turning into a slum.
