Modern Scottish poetry by C Whyte( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite the crucial role played by Scottish poetry in the move towards self-definition and autonomy during the latter half of the twentieth century, there has been no specific study dedicated to its evolution. Modern Scottish Poetry is a groundbreaking survey of the field, notionally framed by the outbreak of the Second World War and the (re)-opening of the Scottish Parliament in 1999. Careful attention is given to this poetry's roots in the preceding period, as well as to the broader European context and to the influence of English and North American writers." "Adopting a decade by decade approach, Christopher Whyte takes a collection by each of twenty significant poets writing in English, Scots and Gaelic as the starting point for an examination of their whole career and of the connections linking them."--Jacket
Gendering the nation : studies in modern Scottish literature( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Too often seen as a ghost from the past, nationalism has resurfaced as a major factor in European politics and culture. A powerful commitment to national autonomy has marked Scottish writing throughout the twentieth century. How has the emergence of new voices from feminist, gay and lesbian critics transformed that commitment? How critical and pluralistic can the new nationalisms be?" "This collection serves notice that the tradition is being read in new and disruptive ways. Five women and four men examine the relationship between gender and nationality, how male and female authors portray women, the treatment of sexuality in Scottish writing, the construction of Scottish masculinity and its relation to class and homophobia. Covering modern fiction and theatre, poetry, film and television, it is a provocative reassessment of the gender and culture of a 'stateless nation'."--Jacket

Moscow in the plague year by Marina T︠S︡vetaeva( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written during the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Moscow famine that followed, these poems are suffused with Tsvetaeva's irony and humor, which undoubtedly accounted for her success in not only reaching the end of the plague year alive, but making it the most productive of her career. We meet a drummer boy idolizing Napoleon, an irrepressibly mischievous grandmother who refuses to apologize to God on Judgment Day, and an androgynous (and luminous) Joan of Arc. "Represented on a graph, Tsvetaeva's work would exhibit a curve - or rather, a straight line - rising at almost a right angle because of her constant effort to raise the pitch a note higher, an idea higher ... She always carried everything she has to say to its conceivable and expressible end. In both her poetry and her prose, nothing remains hanging or leaves a feeling of ambivalence. Tsvetaeva is the unique case in which the paramount spiritual experience of an epoch (for us, the sense of ambivalence, of contradictoriness in the nature of human existence) served not as the object of expression but as its means, by which it was transformed into the material of art."--Joseph Brodsky While your eyes follow me into the grave, write up the whole caboodle on my cross! 'Her days began with songs, ended in tears, but when she died, she split her sides with laugher!' --from Moscow in the Plague Year: Poems

Collected poems by Somhairle MacGill-Eain( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sorley MacLean (Somhairle MacGillEain 1911-1996) is generally recognised as the most significant writer in Scottish Gaelic of the twentieth century. Yet his work possesses a relevance extending far beyond the bounds of his nation or his language. His 1943 collection Dàin do Eimhir (Poems to Eimhir) brought Gaelic poetry abreast of the modern world with breathtaking and notorious effectiveness. The love sequence at its core shows a young man battling with the conflicting claims of love and duty against the background of a continent hurtling unstoppably into allout war. His political poem An Cui
