John Buchan and the Idea of Modernity
Kate Macdonald, Nathan Waddell
Pickering & Chatto, 2013 - Literary Criticism - 270 pages
"Considered a quintessentially 'popular' author, John Buchan (1875-1940) was a prolific writer of fiction, journalism, philosophy and Scottish history. The essays in this collection examine Buchan's wide-ranging work in relation to contemporary ideas of modernity. By examining his engagement with empire, psychoanalysis, masculinity and propaganda, the contributors to this volume place Buchan at the centre of the debate between popular culture and the modernist elite."--Publisher's website.
