9780050031971: Neil M.Gunn and Lewis Grassic Gibbon (Modern Writers)

This full-length introductory study, first published in 1983, compares and contrasts these two writers. After setting Gunn and Gibbon in the context of the Scottish Renaissance - arguably, says Douglas Gifford, one of the richest periods of all Scottish Literature - it goes on to give an overview of each writer's work as a whole. This leads to detailed examination of their two most widely known works, Gunn's The Silver Darlings and Gibbon's A Scots Quair. The author shows how these two outstanding examples of the novelists' art, while providing plentiful examples of the qualities and similarities, yet epitomise their essential differences - Gunn's positive hope and Gibbon's negative despair.
