Rocks of nation

The imagination of Celtic Cornwall

Shelley Trower

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides new insights into the imagination of nations and races, and argues that it is grounded in the landscape, and in the rocks themselves
  • Contributes to contemporary theories of nation, revealing how national identity is bound up with materiality
  • Spans over two centuries, from 1800 to the present, involving a wide range of writers, including the Romantic scientist Humphry Davy, Gothic and Modernist novelists and Cornish nationalists
  • Provides a timely, in-depth case study of Cornwall in the wider context of Britain and the rise of nationalist politics, especially in England (UKIP) and Scotland (SNP)
