Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Literature

Book by Berthold Schoene, Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Literature Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Literature books, The Edinburgh Companion to Contemporary Scottish Literature examines the ways in which the cultural and political role of Scottish writing has changed since the country's successful referendum on national self-rule in 1997. In doing so, it makes a convincing case for a distinctive post-devolution Scottish criticism. Introducing over forty original essays under four main headings - 'Contexts', 'Genres', 'Authors' and 'Topics' - the volume covers the entire spectrum of current interests and topical concerns in the field of Scottish studies and heralds a new era in Scottish writing, literary criticism and cultural theory. It records and critically outlines prominent literary trends and developments, the specific political circumstances and aesthetic agendas that propel them, as well as literature's capacity for envisioning new and alternative futures. Issues under discussion include class, sexuality and gender, nationhood and globalisation, the New Europe and cosmopolitan citizenship, postcoloniality,

Devolving Black British Theory

Book by Joseph Horgan Jackson, Devolving Black British Theory Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Devolving Black British Theory books, The 'black British movement' is a consolidation of a diverse range of political, social and cultural priorities into a collective. Some of the more salient priorities include the opposition to British racism and imperialism, a challenge to hegemonic power and the invisibility of white ethnicity, and the eventual annihilation of the race concept itself. To 'devolve' this movement is to acknowledge some vital shortcomings in its critical practice. Firstly, an interrogation is needed of the assumptions that underpin the term 'British', specifically within a critique of racism and its derivatives. Secondly, the movement currently fails to thoroughly spatialise black British critique beyond the urban 'metropole' of London, and to a lesser extent, Birmingham; for instance, to the 'margins' of Scotland's political, cultural and social milieu. Here, Scottish devolution provokes questions of how black Britishness might have become co-opted into a broader legitimation of 'British' culture. Literature has been a key site of contestation for black British cultural theory. Contemporary Scottish literature 'writes back' to the British management of difference through state-led multiculturalism and nationalism. Equally, the 'Scottish Myth' of egalitarianism, racelessness and a laissez-faire expectation of civic nationalism in Scotland are challenged by texts which foreground Scottish racism, whiteness and ethnocultural nationalism. In short, the texts featured herein expose and renegotiate the political practices of race, racism and culturalism in the context of two discourses of nation: Britain and Scotland.

Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Poetry

Book by Matt McGuire, Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Poetry Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Edinburgh Companion To Contemporary Scottish Poetry books, The last three decades have seen unprecedented flourishing of creativity across the Scottish literary landscape, so that contemporary Scottish poetry constitutes an internationally renowned, award-winning body of work. At the heart of this has been the work of poets. As this poetry makes space for its own innovative concerns, it renegotiates the poetic inheritance of preceding generations. At the same time, Scottish poetry continues to be animated by writing from other places. The Edinburgh Companion to Contemporary Scottish Poetry is the definitive guide to this flourishing poetic scene. Its chapters examine Scottish poetry in all three of the nation's languages. It analyses many thematic preoccupations: tradition and innovation; revolutions in gender; the importance of place; the aesthetic politics of devolution. These chapters are complemented by extended close readings of the work of key poets that have defined this era, including Edwin Morgan, Kathleen Jamie, Don Paterson, Aonghas MacNeacail and John Burnside.
