- We can order this
This book studies medieval Scottish literature in light of theories on national identity, exploring how notions of ethnicity, language, class, kingship, history, folklore, and writing influence the ways Scots identify themselves. With chapters devoted to John Barbour's "Bruce", Sir Richard Holland's "Buke of the Howlat", and Blind Hary's "Wallace", Scottish identity is seen as a textual construction, the product of medieval writers' tales of Scottish heroes such as Bruce, Douglas, and Wallace.
