New Book by David Robb

Alec Forbes of Howglen and the Condition of Scotland
by David Robb

‘It tells us something about the nature of George MacDonald’s particular genius that the current interest in him, both among academics and general readers, is a worldwide phenomenon… He has become a world writer, transcending the boundaries of nations and languages, and also the cultural boundaries arising from the historical circumstances of his Victorian time and place.’ From the Foreword

George MacDonald (1824-1905) is here studied as a Scottish writer: Robb analyses what is perhaps his best novel so as to illuminate both the mind of an important nineteenth-century writer and also the times in which he lived.

The work ends with a ‘Summary of Alec Forbes of Howglen’ and a list of editions published in MacDonald’s lifetime.
