Product description

This study examines six of the most influential and cutting-edge contemporary Scottish writers as they redefine outmoded notions of Scottish identity. It deals with contemporary topics in Scottish literature, such as youth and rave culture, sexuality, gender, voice and self-awareness, and offers a concise and insightful introduction to the new and exciting voices which emerged from Scotland in the 1990s, with comprehensive introductions of each author's full body of work. Cristie L. March provides a critical reading of each author's work, designed to be accessible to novices and specialists alike, and goes on to assess each author's contribution to establishing new directions for Scottish literature and identity.
