During the years since his premature death the writing of Lewis Grassic Gibbon has been an inspiration to many people. Jack Webster wrote in the Herald in 1995 "...Lewis Grassic Gibbon, great literary light of the twentieth century, who so changed my life in the course of a day that I have remained for ever in his debt...the day I read his remarkable Sunset Song, suddenly opened my eyes to the deeper beauty of that life which surrounded me; opened my ears to the land which now seemed to have a voice of its own".
