Introduction ; Alasdair Gray: Ink for worlds


Alasdair Gray: Ink for Worlds offers fresh perspectives on Alasdair Gray's literary and pictorial works, with contributions by established critics including Alan Riach, Kirsten Stirling, Liliane Louvel, Gray's biographer Rodge Glass, Sorcha Dallas (Alasdair Gray Foundation), Scott Hames, and Alasdair Gray himself. From Lanark to his most recent publications and even forthcoming ones, Alasdair Gray's literary and pictorial works display a continuously renewed energy that is approached from a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives, among which are literary studies, fine art, word and image studies, architecture and media studies. The chapters gathered herein demonstrate how Alasdair Gray's 'imagined objects' have long turned to three-dimensional, perfectly functional (or, when necessary, perfectly dysfunctional) worlds in their own right that can equally shape and disrupt the literary, political and social environment out of which they arose.
