J.O. Morgan: Assurances

About J.O. Morgan: Assurances

Assurances begins in the 1950s during a period of vigilance and dread in the middle of the Cold War: the long stand-off between nuclear powers, where the only defence was the threat of mutually assured destruction.

Using a mix of versed and unversed passages, Morgan places moments of calm reflection alongside the tensions inherent in guarding against such a permanent threat in a war-poem about the nuclear stalemate which is both historic and frighteningly topical.

Chaired by Jim Carruth, Poet Laureate for Glasgow

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for J.O. Morgan: Assurances are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
