About this product
- DescriptionThis essential collection from Lewis Grassic Gibbon comprises short stories, essays and a vel, The Speak of the Mearns , which was unfinished at the time of the author's death in 1935. Grassic Gibbon's fame rests mainly on the trilogy, A Scots Quair , and the short stories, some well kwn, exhibit the same elements - powerful, dramatic writing and a distinctive local flavour - found in the vels. The Speak of the Mearns is a sharply observed unsentimental portrait of a rural coastal community seen through the eyes of a young boy growing up there. The essays put on record the author's views on politics and religion.
- Author BiographyLewis Grassic Gibbon (James Leslie Mitchell) was one of the finest writers of the twentieth century. Born in Aberdeenshire in 1901, he died at the age of thirty-four. He was a prolific writer of novels, short stories, essays and science fiction, and his writing reflected his wide interest in religion, archaeology, history, politics and science. The Mearns trilogy, A Scots Quair, is his most renowned work, and has become a landmark in Scottish literature. Ian Campbell is Professor of Victorian and Scottish Literature at Edinburgh University.
