Lord Gawain Douglas

Fortuna

Poetry runs through the generations of the ancient Douglas line. First there was Gavin Douglas, a sixteenth-century bishop and one of Scotland's most famous Renaissance characters and poets, and then William Douglas, who wrote the words for the song 'Annie Lawrie'. Lord Gawain's father was a famous reciter of Shakespeare's sonnets, and his great-uncle, Lord Alfred Douglas, was recognized by Oscar Wilde and George Bernard Shaw as one of England's outstanding poets.

Gawain has continued this family tradition, and his new collection, Fortuna, is a distillation of his poetry from the last 36 years.

The poet reads from his collection.
