Abstract : In the last twenty five years Scottish literature has attracted increasing interest. Many observers would agree that the publication of Lanark by Alasdair Gray in 1981 marked a turning point in the imaginative representation of Scotland. Since that year, many writers have appeared, whose reputation now extends far beyond the limits of Scotland. The present volume gathers papers given at a conference in Nantes, France, March 2006, and examines the works of two of the best representatives of the contemporary scene, Janice Galloway and Alasdair Gray, two novelists whose works are so different in many ways but share a similar interest in formal experimentation and voice. The book also includes an interview with Janice Galloway.
