'The study of Scottish literature, once seen as a marginalised or minor endeavour, has come of age, given the high calibre of the essays collected here.' Scotland on Sunday 'A valuable overview.' Sunday Herald 'The essays contained in this volume provide a broad overview of Scottish literary writing from the earliest times to the present day. It represents an invaluable resource for anyone beginning their exploration of a particular period, author, or genre; but with contributions from many of the leading scholars in their respective fields, it will also reward the more knowledgeable reader with fresh insights and new perspectives.' ASLS '... a fascinating account of Scottish literature from the sixth century onwards. ... The Companion to Scottish Literature should be on the required reading list of anyone interested in the development and current state of Scottish literature and, by extension, the Scottish critical tradition.' Rhona Brown, Scottish Studies Newsletter
