The Edinburgh History of Scottish Literature free pdf The Edinburgh History of Scottish Literature General Editor: Ian Brown Co-editors: Thomas Owen Clancy, Susan Manning and Murray Pittock The Edinburgh History of Scottish Literature offers a major reinterpretation, re-evaluation and repositioning of the scope, nature and importance of Scottish Literature, arguably Scotland's most important and influential contribution to world culture. Drawing on the very best of recent scholarship, the History contributes a wide range of new and exciting insights. It takes full account of modern theory, but refuses to be in thrall to critical fashion. It is important not only for literary scholars, but because it changes the very way we think about what Scottishness is.

Giving full credit to writing in Gaelic and by the Scottish diaspora, it brings together the best contemporary critical insights from three continents. It provides an accessible and refreshing picture of both the varieties of Scottish literatures and the kaleidoscopic versions of Scotland that mark literary developments since 1918. The other volumes in the History are: The Edinburgh History of Scottish Literature, Volume 1: From Columba to the Union (until 1707) The Edinburgh History of Scottish Literature, Volume 2: Enlightenment, Britain and Empire (1707-1918) Key Features * Original - presents new approaches to what is literature and what is Scottishness. * Inclusive - Gaelic and diasporic writing, Latin writing, theological writing, legal writing, and context chapters. * Comprehensive - provides the fullest coverage of Scottish literature ever and the first survey for almost 20 years. * Distinguished contributors from many countries. * Influences the agenda for critical debate on Scottish writing in the twenty-first century.
