The Edinburgh Companion to Contemporary Scottish Literature

edited by Berthold Schoene

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Defines a new period in Scottish literary history: 'post-devolution Scottish literature'
  • Introduces over forty original essays under four main headings - 'Contexts', 'Genres', 'Authors' and 'Topics'
  • Positions literature within the broadest possible cultural framework, from history, politics and economics to new creative technologies, ecology and the media
  • Likely to become the 'standard' work of criticism appealing to students, teachers, researchers and critics as well as to a general readership interested in Scottish literary affairs
