The article discusses Edwin Morgan's transformation to concrete poetry where one of concrete's appeal was the experimentation it offered between linearity and spatiality. Morgan explains that one of the most important effects of concrete is its ability to challenge the insularity not only within Scottish literary culture but in also in Great Britain. It cites Morgan's belief that concrete poetry gives something that is quite small but may be a small key that opens to a large door.
