Christine De Luca

Edinburgh's Makar, or poet laureate, Christine De Luca wasn't born in the capital. In our latest podcast, she tells us about her childhood in Shetland, and how she's taken her native dialect around the world. She recalls the unexpected impact her poem about the Scottish Referendum 'The Morning After' had, and she talks about translating the Finnish epic The Kalevala.
