9780521590389: The Scottish Invention of English Literature

The Scottish Invention of English Literature explores the origins of the teaching of English literature in the academy. An international team of contributors demonstrates how the subject was invented in Scottish universities before being exported abroad, where it was linked to the search for distinctive cultural identities throughout the English-speaking world. This comprehensive account provides a wealth of new material on this international dimension, while also demonstrating the particular Scottish provenance of the university subject of English literature.

About the Author:

Robert Crawford is professor of modern Scottish literature at the University of St. Andrews. His many books include "Scotland's Books: The Penguin History of Scottish Literature," as well as the poetry collections "The Tip of My Tongue" and "Full Volume" (both Cape).

Review:

"The book's major achievement is in establishing a Scottish line of critical descent in the development of literature as an academic discipline For this reason, and for its graceful form and style (a tribute to Scottish literary traditions), this should be essential reading for every literary scholar." Studies in Scottish Literature

"Crawford's thesis is as elegant as it is grandiose." Financial Times, U.S. Edition, John Sutherland

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. The Scottish Invention of English Literature explores the origins of the teaching of English literature in the academy. It demonstrates how the subject began in eighteenth-century Scottish universities before being exported to America and other countries. The emergence of English as an institutionalised university subject was linked to the search for distinctive cultural identities throughout the English-speaking world. This book explores the role the discipline played in administering restraints on the expression of indigenous literary forms, and shows how the growing professionalisation of English as a subject offered a breeding ground for academics and writers with an interest in native identity and cultural nationalism. This book is a comprehensive account of the historical origins of the university subject of English literature and provides a wealth of new material on its particular Scottish provenance.
