The Edinburgh Companion to Twentieth-Century Scottish Literature written by Ian Brown

 

The Edinburgh Companion to Twentieth-Century Scottish Literature written by Ian Brown

Overview:

This volume considers the major themes, texts, and authors of Scottish literature of the twentieth and early-twenty-first centuries. Contributors identify the contexts and impulses that led Scottish writers to adopt their creative literary strategies. Moving beyond traditional classifications, the volume draws on recent critical approaches to introduce new perspectives on Scottish literature since 1900. Its innovative thematic structure ensures that the most important texts or authors are interpreted through a variety of lenses, whether via empire, renaissance, war and postwar, literary genre, generation, and resistance. In order to provide thorough coverage, these thematic chapters are accompanied by chronological "Arcade" chapters that outline the contexts of literature by decade and by "Overview" chapters that trace developments in theater, language, and Gaelic literature across the century. Taken together, this volume provides a thorough and thought-provoking account of the century's literature.
