Most widely held works by Gerard Carruthers
English romanticism and the Celtic world( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 2,122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"English Romanticism and the Celtic World explores the way in which British Romantic writers responded to the national and cultural identities of the 'four nations' England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The essays collected here interrogate the cultural centres as well as the peripheries of Romanticism, and the interactions between these. They underline 'Celticism' as an emergent strand of cultural ethnicity during the eighteenth century, examining the constructions of Celticness and Britishness in the Romantic period, including the ways in which the 'Celtic' countries viewed themselves in the light of Romanticism."--Jacket

Scotland and the 19th-century world( )

7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The nineteenth century is often read as a time of retreat and diffusion in Scottish literature under the overwhelming influence of British identity. Scotland and the 19th-Century World presents Scottish literature as altogether more dynamic, with narratives of Scottish identity working beyond the merely imperial. This collection of essays by leading international scholars highlights Scottish literary intersections with North America, Asia, Africa and Europe. James Macpherson, Francis Jeffrey, Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson and John Davidson feature alongside other major literary and cultural figures in this groundbreaking volume."--Publisher's website

Scottish poems by Gerard Carruthers( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a sweeping literary tour of Scotland from the Middle Ages to the present, gathering the best of Scottish poetry from beloved classics to contemporary voices. Scottish poetry has a long and distinguished history in three languages - English, Scots, and Gaelic - and all are well represented here. The most renowned and beloved poets - Robert Burns, Sir Walter Scott, Robert Louis Stevenson, Hugh MacDiarmid, and Muriel Spark among them - mingle with their lesser-known but equally distinctive compatriots, including many of those who have emerged from the recent Scottish poetry renaissance. The poems are organized by theme: from matters of the heart to subjects spiritual and philosophical to the poetry of place. All of the verse is marked by a characteristic energy, wit, satire, and passionate lyrical intensity, and all demonstrates the power of art that proudly emanates from, but is never limited by, the place of its birth

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Scotland's rich literary tradition is a product of its unique culture and landscape, as well as of its long history of inclusion and resistance to the United Kingdom. Scottish literature includes masterpieces in three languages - English, Scots and Gaelic - and global perspectives from the diaspora of Scots all over the world. This Companion offers a unique introduction, guide and reference work for students and readers of Scottish literature from the pre-medieval period to the post-devolution present. Essays focus on key periods and movements (the Scottish Enlightenment, Scottish Romanticism, the Scottish Renaissance), genres (the historical novel, Scottish Gothic, 'Tartan Noir') and major authors (Burns, Scott, Stevenson, MacDiarmid and Spark). A chronology and guides to further reading in each chapter make this an ideal overview of a national literature that continues to develop its own distinctive style"--
International companion to John Galt( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Galt (1779-1839) was a contemporary of Sir Walter Scott and Jane Austen, and a friend and biographer of Lord Byron. Although a prolific writer, and much admired in his own lifetime, Galt has never achieved comparable levels of literary fame, and his works - poised between Enlightenment and Romanticism - are now often overlooked. Yet his reputation has been slowly growing, and he has attracted critical interest as both a political novelist and a chronicler of Scottish life. This international companion builds on a steady stream of recent scholarship, and examines Galt's writing in the social, economic, and religious contexts of their time
