BeschreibungThe cult-figure of McGonagall was legendary as the 'worst poet of all time'. Mangled metre, rhythm, McGonagall's work was characterised by these much-lampooned features. He was ridiculed in the UK and US from 1870 when his work started to appear in journals and magazines. This title provides a fascinating portrayal of the poet and his verse.
PortraitCharles Nasmyth is an artist, and teacher, based in Edinburgh. He is married.
Pressestimmen'The artist sees McGonagall as a complex character. He may have been deluded with regard to his own abilities, but he was motivated by an unshakeable self-belief which is one of the very qualities we associate with genius.' Scotland on Sunday'Very amusing and well-illustrated.' Five-star review by Amazon reader
