Scottish people's theatre : plays by Glasgow Unity writers( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing out of roots planted in the Great Depression and the chaos of the Second World War, Glasgow Unity Theatre grew into the most celebrated and influential of mid-twentieth century Scottish theatre companies, successfully developing the theatrical styles and political commitments of the organisations from which it came. This new publication contains acting scripts of five of their most important plays, including Ena Lamont Stewart's Men Should Weep in its previously-unpublished first version, and a play from the 1950s, All in Good Faith, by Roddy McMillan, whohad begun his career as one of Unity's outstanding performers. Along with Unity's celebrated achievements in the late 1940s - Robert McLeish's The Gorbals Story, George Munro's Gold in his Boots, and Benedick Scott's The Lambs of God -- this volume allows Unity's work to be read together, for the first time, and seen fully in the context of its period and influence. Here too we can see a use of Scots language far removed from the pantomime, music-hall and comedy of the contemporary stage, and capable instead of conveying genuine and universal emotions

Crossing the Highland line : cross-currents in eighteenth-century Scottish writing, selected papers from the 2005 ASLS Annual Conference( Book )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The eighteenth century was a time of dramatic change and drastic upheaval in Scotland, from the Treaty of Union with England in 1707, through Jacobite rebellions in the Highlands, to the Scottish Enlightenment. Crossing the Highland Line is a new collection of essays examining this crucial period, exploring the literary connections and influences across Scotland, and tracing the links between those who wrote in Scots and English and those who wrote in Gaelic." "These essays, from fourteen leading scholars, show that the whole of Scotland - Highland and Lowland, high cultures and low - participated in the reshaping of literature in the eighteenth century. The Highland Line does not divide."--Jacket
