Scottish Modernism and its Contexts 1918-1959

This chapter discusses the changes brought to modernist art as a result of the First and Second World Wars, one of which was the contribution of the women writers who became popular during the interwar years. Another change was the emergence of new poets and writers in the 1940s and 1950s. The chapter notes that not all of these new poets can be considered as modernist writers, and that the Scottish modernists of the post-1918 period have forever changed the course of Scottish literature.

Keywords:   modernist art, women writers, interwar years, new poets, modernist writers, Scottish modernists, post-1918 period, Scottish literature
