(p.154) Chapter 8 Poetry and Politics
Scottish Modernism and its Contexts 1918-1959

Margery Palmer McCulloch

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter talks about the attempts to bring politics directly into poetry. It first discusses the origins of the literary revival movement, which was able to contain a modern and modernist concern with the remaking of artistic forms. This movement also included an ideological concern to politically, economically and socially restore the life of the nation. The discussion then shifts to MacDiarmid, who was the only poet who appeared to address the question of poetry and politics most directly.

Keywords:   poetry and politics, literary revival movement, artistic forms, ideological concern
