The Scottish Novel Since The Seventies

Book by Stuart Wallace, The Scottish Novel Since The Seventies Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Scottish Novel Since The Seventies books, The last two decades have seen a new renaissance in Scottish literary culture in which the Scottish novel has attained new heights of maturity, confidence and challenge. The Scottish Novel since the Seventies is the first major critical assessment of the developments in Scottish fiction in this period. Ranging from the work of longer-established authors such as Robin Jenkins, Muriel Spark and William McIlvanney to the more recent experiments of Alasdair Gray, James Kelman and Janice Galloway, it provides a new critical focus on the intriguing relationship between continuity and innovation which characterises the novel's response to the complex changes in Scottish culture and society during the past twenty years. The contributors include established critics and academics as well as younger novelists and theorists. They assess the work of an extensive number of writers in the context of a correspondingly wide range of issues: gender, postmodernism, political identity, archaism and myth, and the theme of disintegration. There are also chapters on the continuing growth of the 'Glasgow novel' and film adaptations of Scottish fiction. A full bibliography of Scottish fiction since 1970 brings this unique critical account right up to date.

Questioning Scotland

Book by E. Bell, Questioning Scotland Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Questioning Scotland books, Questioning Scotland considers the ways in which Scottish Literature has often been discussed in parochial, essentialist terms. It suggests that Scottish literary studies must now expand its conceptual boundaries in order to account for changes taking place at wider European and global levels. It is literary-based but also scrutinizes the methodological construction process of national traditions. Drawing on wider theories of postmodernism, (post)nationalism and globalism, it will help map the changing nature of national studies and Scottish studies in particular.

The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Scottish History

Book by T. M. Devine, The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Scottish History Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Oxford Handbook Of Modern Scottish History books, Over the last three decades major advances in research and scholarship have transformed understanding of the Scottish past. In this landmark study some of the most eminent writers on the subject, together with emerging new talents, have combined to produce a large-scale volume which reconsiders in fresh and illuminating ways the classic themes of the nation's history since the sixteenth century as well as a number of new topics which are only now receiving detailed attention. Such major themes as the Reformation, the Union of 1707, the Scottish Enlightenment, clearances, industrialisation, empire, emigration, and the Great War are approached from novel and fascinating perspectives, but so too are such issues as the Scottish environment, myth, family, criminality, the literary tradition, and Scotland's contemporary history. All chapters contain expert syntheses of current knowledge, but their authors also stand back and reflect critically on the questions which still remain unanswered, the issues which generate dispute and controversy, and sketch out where appropriate the agenda for future research. The Handbook also places the Scottish experience firmly into an international historical perspective with a considerable focus on the age-old emigration of the Scottish people, the impact of successive waves of immigrants to Scotland, and the nation's key role within the British Empire. The overall result is a vibrant and stimulating review of modern Scottish history: essential reading for students and scholars alike.

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,

Culture Nation And The New Scottish Parliament

Book by Caroline McCracken-Flesher, Culture Nation And The New Scottish Parliament Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Culture Nation And The New Scottish Parliament books, Culture, Nation, and the New Scottish Parliament asserts that while Scotland's new Parliament (1999) is a creation of laws, politics, and economics, some of the forces underpinning it are cultural, therefore constantly alive and insistently creative. Scotland may not be confined by, but has always lived within and moved forward and outward, through its signs and stories. In the moment of the new Parliament, it is time to cast up Scotland's accounts of past and present, and to review the nation's futures. Readers will find the usual signs of Scotland foregrounded, questioned, and re-energized as contributors trace the dynamic toward a Scottish Parliament. And they will find new signs, whether sounds, sights, or souvenirs come into play, revealing today's performance of a dynamic Scotland. Caroline McCracken-Flesher teaches the novel, the British eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Scottish literature, and literary theory at the University of Wyoming.
