Interrogates the Gothic in relation to Scotland, 'Scottishness', British Gothic, cultural and national boundaries, and issues of identity Written from various critical standpoints by internationally renowned scholars, Scottish Gothic: An Edinburgh Companion interrogates the ways in which the concepts of the Gothic and Scotland have intersected and been manipulated from the mid-eighteenth century to the present day. This interdisciplinary collection is the first ever published study to investigate the multifarious strands of Gothic in Scottish fiction, poetry, theatre and film. Its contributors -- all specialists in their fields -- combine an attention to socio-historical and cultural contexts with a rigorous close reading of works, both classic and lesser known, produced between the eighteenth and twenty-first centuries. Key Features Offers the first critical collection devoted to the topic of the Scottish Gothic as it is manifested across centuries Re-ignites ongoing debates about the relationship between Scotland and the Gothic, Scotland and Romanticism, Scotland and the Enlightenment, and the role of the Gothic in relation to national identity issues Considers issues of religion, politics, history, and culture/cultural identity in Scottish Gothic texts across centuries against the backdrop of the Act of Union and the process of devolution/independence Presents fresh readings of established, overlooked, and recent Scottish Gothic works across a variety of cultural and literary forms
