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. The Edinburgh History of Scottish Literature, Volume 2: Enlightenment, Britain and Empire (1707-1918) Period Editor: Susan Manning General Editor: Ian Brown Co-editors: Thomas Owen Clancy and Murray Pittock Between 1707 and 1918, Scotland underwent arguably the most dramatic upheavals in its political, economic and social history.The Union with England, industrialisation and Scotland's subsequent defining contributions throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries to the culture of Britain and Empire are reflected in the transformative energies of Scottish literature and literary institutions in the period. New genres, new concerns and whole new areas of interest opened under the creative scrutiny of sceptical minds. This second volume of the History reveals the major contribution made by Scottish writers and Scottish writing to the shape of modernity in Britain, Europe and the world. 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 3: Modern Transformations: New Identities (from 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.
