T.S. Eliot, in a famous Athenaeum review of 1919, asked ‘Is there a Scottish Literature?’ In this provocative essay, Professor Riach turns Eliot’s question on its head to explore issues of origins and identity, language and culture, national and political allegiances.
Alan Riach is Professor of Scottish Literature at the University of Glasgow.
