Critics hailed The Literature of Scotland as one of the most comprehensive and fascinatingly readable accounts of Scottish life and literature. This revised edition now focuses on Medieval to Victorian times, exploring the growth of the idea of a nation from the early ballads and the oral tradition to the achievement of Burns, Scott and Carlyle. The literature which followed in the modern period is discussed in a new companion volume Literature of Scotland: The Twentieth Century .
