9783631550632: Re-Visioning Scotland: New Readings of the Cultural Canon (Anglo-amerikanische Studien / Anglo-American Studies)

This volume offers new research and thoughtful reflection on the subject of canonicity in Scottish literature, from the Romantic grand narratives of the 18th and 19th century to post-modernist deconstructions of national myths. The essays collected here examine fundamental questions about nationalism and canon formation from a range of critical perspectives and distinct contextualisations: writers discussed include, among others, Robert Burns, Christian Carstairs, Mary Diana Dods, A. L. Kennedy, Janice Galloway, John Gait, Alasdair Gray, Christian Isobel Johnstone, Jean Marshal, Margaret Oliphant, Walter Scott and Nan Shepherd. Re-Visioning Scotland not only contributes to the contemporary, lively national debate about issues of Scottish identity and writing but also offers a rich and fascinating case-study, which will reveal to scholars, even beyond the disciplinary borders of Scottish studies, new and stimulating paths of investigation and understanding.
