The period from the mid-eighteenth to the mid-nineteenth century was a time of rapid social and political transformation and high cultural achievement in Scotland. The 1707 Union of Parliaments had made the country part of the new polity of Great Britain and the century and a half that followed witnessed a steady growth in Britain's global power. Scotland played a leading role in these developments and Scottish writers responded in diverse ways to the challenges of modernity. The course examines how these challenges are imagined in key poetic, fictional and philosophical texts.
