Scottish War Poetry 1914–1945

(Scotnotes Study Guides)

By David Goldie, Roderick Watson

Format: Paperback

This SCOTNOTE Study Guide explores the responses of Scottish poets to the First and Second World Wars, from the sometimes jingoistic optimism of the early days of 1914, to the horrors of the trenches, to the massed and mechanised brutalities of total war - not forgetting, too, the experiences on the Home Front and the traumas of memory.

The Association for Scottish Literary Studies

The Association for Scottish Literary Studies is an educational charity that aims to promote the study, teaching and writing of Scottish literature, and to further the study of the languages of Scotland. To these ends, ASLS publishes works of Scottish literature which have either been neglected or which merit a fresh presentation to a modern audience, and critical anthologies of both creative and non-fiction writing.
