Culture and leisure in Hugh MacDiarmid's 'On a Raised Beach'

Abstract:
In his poem 'On a Raised Beach', Hugh MacDiarmid lifted the phrase 'A culture demands leisure and leisure presupposes | A self-determined rhythm of life' from an essay in The New English Weekly. This essay pursues the implications of the borrowing, contextualizing the poem in relation to contemporary conceptions of leisure and culture, particularly those associated with Social Credit.
