Searching for the source: Neil Gunn's Highland River

David Clark Mitchell

Abstract

Neil Gunn's Highland River is arguably the most European of the Scottish novels to come out of the period often misleadingly referred to as the Scottish Literary Renaissance of the 1920s and 30s. This article argues that the novel is an important work, largely-ignored outside Scotland which successfully unites the Scottish metaphysical tradition with many of the formal and thematic devices of twentieth-century European modernism.
