The Edinburgh Companion to Scottish Romanticism, Hardback Book

The Edinburgh Companion to Scottish Romanticism Hardback

Edited by Professor Murray Pittock

Part of the Edinburgh Companions to Scottish Literature series


Bringing together an international group of experts, this companion explores a distinctly Scottish Romanticism.

Discussing the most influential texts and authors in depth, the original essays shed new critical light on texts from Macpherson's Ossian poetry to Hogg's Confessions of a Justified Sinner, and from Scott's Waverley Novels to the work of John Galt.

As well as dealing with the major Romantic figures, the contributors look afresh at ballads, songs, the idea of the bard, religion, periodicals, the national tale, the picturesque, the city, language and the role of Gaelic in Scottish Romanticism.

Key Features * The first and only student guide to Scottish Romanticism capturing the best of critical debate while providing new approaches * Contributors include: Ian Duncan (UC Berkeley), Angela Esterhammer (Zurich University), Peter Garside (Edinburgh University), Andrew Monnickendam (Barcelona University), Fiona Stafford (Oxford University), Fernando Toda (Salamanca University) and Crawford Gribben (Trinity College, Dublin) - who have themselves helped to define approaches to the period
