Studies in Scottish Fiction:- Nineteenth Century

Nineteenth Century

Series:

Horst W. Drescher and Joachim Schwend

The contributors to this volume of essays take a new look at nineteenth-century Scottish prose writing. Adopting diverse approaches, they discuss critically and in detail pre-Victorian and Victorian Scottish fiction represented by James Hogg, Sir Walter Scott, John Galt, Susan Edmonstone Ferrier, John Gibson Lockhart, Thomas Carlyle, William Edmonstoune Aytoun, George MacDonald, Robert Louis Stevenson, John Davidson, Samuel Rutherford Crockett, and James Matthew Barrie. There is a rich diversity in nineteenth-century Scottish literature, but there is also the distinct voice of cultural identity and national self-consciousness.
