Edinburgh Companion to Scottish Romanticism

Synopsis

Composed by an international group of experts, this collection of original essays explores a distinctly Scottish Romanticism as it is presented in literary theory, religious studies, music and the thematic use of Scots and Gaelic. Studying the most influential texts and authors in depth, the contributors shed new critical light on texts from Macpherson's antiquarian poetry to Hogg's Confessions of a Justified Sinner, and from Scott's Waverley Novels to Galt's Tales of the West, while exploring the different genres that characterized the movement, such as lyric poetry, the historical novel, travel writing, periodicals and chapbooks, and the ways that the literature of the time interacted with the public sphere through mediums such as performance. Contributors include Ian Duncan, Katie Trumpener, Peter Garside, Andrew Monnickendam, Fiona Stafford and Crawford Gribben.
