Scottish women's poetry: Introduction

Carole Jones, Fiona McCulloch

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


This introduction to the Scottish Women’s Poetry special issue presents a brief overview of the current critical field, sets out the rationale behind the special issue as going someway to initiate a redressing of the critical neglect of twenty-first-century Scottish women poets, and addresses the significance of the terms of engagement before going on to introduce the essays. It argues for the special issue as a step toward encouraging greater critical engagement with Scottish women’s poetry and exploration of the diverse strands of practice in the field.
