Critics hailed the first edition of The Literature of Scotland as one of the most comprehensive and fascinatingly readable accounts of Scottish literature in all three of the country's languages - Gaelic, Scots and English. In this extensively revised and expanded new edition, Roderick Watson traces the lives and works of Scottish writers in a beautiful and rugged country that has been divided by political and religious conflict but united, too, by a democratic and egalitarian ideal of nationhood. The Literature of Scotland: The Middle Ages to the Nineteenth Century follows the story from Barbour to John Davidson, exploring the growth of the idea of a nation from the flowering of the Makars to the early ballads and the oral tradition; from courtly verse to the prose of the Reformation and the rise of the Scottish Enlightenment; from Duncan Bàn Macintyre and the great Gaelic poets to the achievement of Robert Burns, Walter Scott, Thomas Carlyle, J. M. Barrie and Robert Louis Stevenson. Each writer is placed in their historical, critical and cultural contexts, and the volume also provides a helpful Further Reading section and chronological timeline, making this the essential guide to Scottish literary history. The literature which followed after the Victorian period is discussed in the companion volume Literature of Scotland: The Twentieth Century.

With an afterword by Andrew Marr. ‘If you are interested in books that are human and wise, then treat yourself this year to some Robin Jenkins.’ Andrew Marr Thirteen-year-old Tom Curdie, the product of a Glasgow slum, is on probation for theft. His teachers admit that he is clever, but only one, Charles Forbes, sees an uncanny warmth in his reticence and in his seemingly insolent smile. So he decides to take Tom on holiday with his own family... On first publication in 1958, The Changeling confirmed the reputation of an author who had long been regarded by his peers as a major force in British writing, and it is now held up as a classic of British literature. ‘One of the best, most completely realised of Jenkins’ novels.’ Alan Spence ‘Quite simply a major writer.’ Herald ‘A delight to read.’ Times Literary Supplement
