Manchester, United Kingdom: Manchester University Press, 2000. 180pp looks unused. Celtic Identity and the British Image explores the idea of the Celt and definition of the so-called 'Celtic Fringe' over the last 300 years. It is the only in-depth study of the literary and cultural representation of Ireland, Scotland and Wales over this period, and is based on an extremely wide-ranging grasp of issues of national identity and state formation. The idea of the Celt and Celticism is once again highly fashionable. Is there such a thing as a common Celtic heritage? What is the place of the 'Celtic Fringe' in British identity? Pittock begins by assessing the term 'Celtic' itself, by questioning its validity, going on to examine its historic uses and heroic notions of Scotland's past. The Celtic Revival of the late nineteenth century is examined in detail, together with its impact on Irish nationalism. Pittock asks how far the 'Celtic' experience in Britain can be described as a colonial one, and examines the importance of the Celtic languages in preserving a sense of identity. Contemporary issues such as the literary language of the Troubles in Northern Ireland and the growth of modern Scottish nationalism are also considered. (publisher notes). Paperback. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
