Abstract

The article discusses several Scottish novels that deal with realism and postmodernism. It explores the contradictions between "Beside the Ocean of Time" by George Mackay Brown, who is a modernist writer, and "How Late It Was, How Late" by quintessential working-class writer James Kelman. It also looks at how Alasdair Gray has combined realism and fantasy in the 1981 novel "Lanark: A Life in Four Books."
