Poet and physician Gael Turnbull was born in Edinburgh, Scotland. A central figure in the British Poetry Revival of the 1960s and 1970s, Turnbull was instrumental in developing ties between innovative and avant-garde British and American poets. His small press, Migrant Press, published the works of poets such as Basil Bunting, an important mentor to Turnbull; Roy Fisher; Ian Hamilton Finlay; Edwin Morgan; Robert Creeley; Ed Dorn; and Cid Corman. A retrospective of his early work was published as A Gathering of Poems, 1950–1980 (1983). In 1989, Turnbull settled back in Edinburgh with his second wife, Jill Iles, a ceramics historian.

A Gathering of Poems 1950-1980 - 1983. There Are Words: Collected Poems - 2006 ISBN 0907562892. Gael Turnbull - (7 April 1928 2 July 2004) was a Scottish poet who was an important precursor of the British Poetry Revival. Turnbull was born in Edinburgh and grew up in the North of England and in Canada. He studied Natural Science at Cambridge University an. He was also published in the anthologies The New British Poetry (1988), Other: British and Irish Poetry since 1970 (1999) and Anthology of Twentieth-Century British and Irish Poetry (2001). He returned to Edinburgh in the early 1990s.

Gael Turnbull, who has died at 76, wrote and promoted the cause of poetry for over half a century. Scarcely I Speak appears in A Gathering Of Poems, 1950-1980, which Anvil Press published in 1983. Edinburgh-born, but resident in north America for many years, he promoted a transatlantic traffic that proved a great inspiration to British practitioners, though his vocation as a doctor left him in no doubt that there were things in life beyond all the fiddle of poetry and the poetic life.

This book gathers Gael Turnbull's poems of thirty years. It brings together poems from his two previous main collections, `A Trampoline' (1968) and `Scantlings' (1970), both published by Cape-Goliard, with more recent work published by various small presses, and some previously unpublished poems.

Edward Lucie-Smith wrote that `His work has exercised a strong personal influence on the course taken by avant-garde poetry in England. His little Migrant Press provided a focus for the post-Poundian poets when these were entirely neglected and out of favour, and he was one of the principal links between the American Black Mountain Poets and this country, long before [they] got "taken up" on either side of the Atlantic and extensively imitated.'

The individuality, variety and strength of Gael Turnbull's poetry is demonstrated in this collection. His poems are characterized by an unusually wide range of technical resource and invention, from formal songs and lyrics, through the persona, prose and collage poems, to the extended compositions of `Twenty Words, Twenty Days', `A Word/A Phrase' and `Residues'.

While his work reflects a transatlantic background, and an affinity both human and formal with William Carlos Williams, the influence of modern French poetry can also be seen in his prose poems. If his poems are to be placed in any context, it is in that area of British poetry which is international in reference, as exemplified by Basil Bunting and Hugh MacDiarmid from an older generation, and Roy Fisher, Edwin Morgan, Matthew Mead and Charles Tomlinson among his contemporaries.
