Show Summary Details


This chapter considers the political developments during the 1920s and 1930s, focusing particularly on the concern over the increasingly depressed social and economic condition of Scotland. This provides the context for the more obvious ideological creative writing of the 1930s. Several references to discursive prose essays and other works by Scottish modernist writers are included.

Keywords: political developments; social condition; economic condition; ideological creative writing; discursive prose essays; Scottish modernist writers
