Über diesen Titel


Alasdair Gray is one of the most innovative and imaginative writers to have appeared on the Scottish literary scene for many years. Gray radically challenges the vision of Glasgow and Scotland as defined by the traditional Glasgow novel. This study first looks back into the past of Glasgow writing to locate some specific novelistic models which Gray echoes in his fiction. The main part of the study then illustrates that Gray's literary attitude of looking 'beyond' Glasgow (or Scotland) is much more helpful in «imagining Glasgow» than to follow the established and trodden paths of Scottish urban writing. In this sense, Gray proves that the narrative techniques characteristic of postmodernist writing are not only helpful in expressing the often quoted Scottish experience of fragmentation, but also in 'overcoming' the artistic stalemate of the Glasgow novel.


Beat Witschi has written a remarkable book which deserves to become as much of a classic as Kurt Wittig's 'The Scottish Tradition in Literature', now over thirty years old. ...Witschi's lucid English and deft interpretive skills make this a most stimulating contribution to the analysis of contemporary Scottish literature. (Christopher Harvie, Zeitschrift fuer Anglistik und Amerikanistik)
