Overview

"Lewis Grassic Gibbon's novel, Sunset Song, was published in 1932. Along with the two subsequent parts of what became the Scots Quair trilogy, it tells the story of Chris Guthrie though her country childhood and marriages before and after the First World War. The distinguishing features of the books - and of this dramatisation - is their use of the rhythms and vocabulary of Scots to tell the story." "Sunset Song is an examination and celebration of rural life dying out. It tells how it feels to be a girl growing up on a farm in Scotland in the early 20th century, how it feels to be in love and in lust, how it feels to be a young mother on her own and how it feels to lose a lover in the war." This edition includes extensive additional material on Gibbon and on the themes and language of his work, and on adapting the novel and getting it on stage.
