Abstract and Keywords

This chapter tries to prove T.S. Eliot's argument that Scottish literature had changed drastically, emphasizing the extent to which Scottish poetry was included in a generic British response to the war. It also takes a look at the state of affairs that a strong and self-conscious literary revival sought to address following the war. The chapter covers the poetry of Anglo-Scotland, the popular poetry that was published in various Scottish newspapers, and the revival of Scottish dialect poetry during the war.

Keywords: T.S. Eliot, Scottish literature, Scottish poetry, British response, literary revival, Anglo-Scotland poetry, popular poetry, dialect poetry
