Overview

Andrews (18th-century British literature, Northwest Missouri State U.) argues that the artistic production of 18th-century Scottish club poets contributed to the creation of a counter-hegemonic strain that sustained nationalist sentiment across generation alongside the dominant structures of feeling that promoted assimilation of English culture. Club poets like Allan Ramsay, Robert Ferfusson, and Robert Burns, he says, sought to represent the club's distinction to its members through the medium of the nation, asking them to imagine themselves as part of an ancient, noble race of leaders and authors by virtue of their nationality. The text is double spaced. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
