Synopsis

This volume includes a selection of Scottish writing from the 'renaissance' of Scottish writing at the end of the nineteenth and beginning of the twentieth centuries. From the Highland and Lowland idylls of Fiona Macleod and Ian Maclaren to John Davidson's proto-Modernist portrayals of disillusioned consciousness and the urban scene; from the sophisticated short fiction of Helen Findlater, Violet Jacob and Willa Muir to the politically-committed theatre of Joe Corrie, these texts represent a cross-section of the ways in which Scottish writers responded to the challenges of advanced industrial and imperial society. Footnotes elucidate historical and other references, and Scots words are fully glossed. The introduction describes the literary and historical background against which these texts can be understood. Robert Irvine is Senior Lecturer in the Department of English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. He is the author of books on Tobias Smollett, Walter Scott, and Jane Austen.
