|Abstract: ||This chapter discusses the cultural politics of identity in the early twentieth
century Scottish literary renaissance. It looks at the paradoxes contained in
what might seem like an essentialist argument for 'Scottish' difference at
political, cultural and psychological levels, while the literary work produced
by its leading exponents actually problematises the very concept of a stable
identity in the first place.|
