Matt Roth replies:

Stan: I don't have Priscilla's book with me, and she can speak for
herself, but there is no doubt that Angus McD was a real fellow (or a
real pseudonymous fellow) and that "incoherent transactions" comes from
him, not Hugh. Is there a secondary allusion to Hugh? Hard for me to see
it.

Oops false start. Beginagain:

Matt: I¹m rather confused. Priscilla Meyer (FWTSHH) [pp 60-61] seems
to
think ³Angus MacDiarmid² is a ³Kinbote coinage,² a made-up name by VN,
hiding the identity of the very REAL Marxist poet HUGH MacDiarmid. I
can
attest to Hugh¹s reality (although he was born C M Grieve! Scope there
for
some Bird Spotting?) since I shared a platform with him in my Commie
days (O
Schmerz). He was very sour-pus¹d when Domnic Behan and I attempted
some
Proddy/IRA ecumenics by singing the Orange anthem, ³The Sash Me Father
Wore.²
