This volume offers basic introductions to the great periods of Scottish literature: medieval and renaissance, the 18th century, The Age of Scott, Victorian and Edwardian, the 20th-century Scottish literary renaissance, and the contemporary and prolific revival of fiction, poetry and drama today. Each section begins with an overview of the period, followed by several chapters examining authors and texts. Each section finishes with an extensive discussion including suggestions as to how to further explore the rich and often neglected interlands of Scottish writing. Reading lists identify primary texts of the period as well as details of a wide range of additional authors.
