Abstract

Review of A Hantle o Verse and Anither Hantle o Verse. The political regeneration of Scotland since devolution has been reflected in any number of cultural developments exploring what it means to be a 21st Century Scot. Pride of place goes to the current Golden Age of Scottish drama, The National Theatre emerging hand in hand with world class writers such as David Harrower, Andrew Greig and Gregory Burke. Prose too has found a certain buoyancy: Canongate publishes Booker winners and Barack Obama; Polygon's jewel is Alexander McCall Smith. Of course, this new-found self-assurance has concentrated the public mind on all things Scottish, including language. Perhaps the most complete expressions of this are Matthew Fitt's cyber-punk sci-fi novel "But'n'Ben A-Go-Go" and Suhaayl Saadi's Scots-Asian raga-rock epic "Psychoraag".
