Abstract : This chapter will consider a selection of works by novelists who are associated with the post-war, although some of them started writing even earlier. After an examination of works by Naomi Mitchison, Fionn MacColla and Eric Linklater, the essay will attempt to show the evolution of Scottish fiction over a period which was a turning point in history and society. The major part will be devoted to three of the most remarkable novelists of the period, Robin Jenkins, James Kennaway and Muriel Spark, writers who, in spite of very different styles and imaginative worlds, seem to offer a transition between novelists of the ‘Renaissance' and the more contemporary representatives of the literary scene.
