About this product
- DescriptionScotland's rich literary tradition is a product of its unique culture and landscape, as well as of its long history of inclusion and resistance to the United Kingdom. Scottish literature includes masterpieces in three languages - English, Scots and Gaelic - and global perspectives from the diaspora of Scots all over the world. This Companion offers a unique introduction, guide and reference work for students and readers of Scottish literature from the pre-medieval period to the post-devolution present. Essays focus on key periods and movements (the Scottish Enlightenment, Scottish Romanticism, the Scottish Renaissance), genres (the historical vel, Scottish Gothic, 'Tartan Noir') and major authors (Burns, Scott, Stevenson, MacDiarmid and Spark). A chrology and guides to further reading in each chapter make this an ideal overview of a national literature that continues to develop its own distinctive style.
- Author BiographyGerard Carruthers is Professor of Scottish Literature Since 1700 at the University of Glasgow. Liam McIlvanney is Stuart Professor of Scottish Studies at the University of Otago, New Zealand.
