This innovative book proposes the replacement of the existing idea of an interwar Scottish Renaissance movement by a Scottish Modernism both interacting with the intellectual and artistic ideas of European Modernism and responding to the Scottish social, political and cultural contexts of the time. Topics range from the new poetry and criticism of the 1920s and the interaction of politics and literature in the 1930s to the re-imagining of the Highlands, the responses of women writers to the changing world of the Modernist period, and the continuing impact of Modernism in the poetry of the 1940s.
