George Mackay Brown and the Philosophy of Community offers a bold reinterpretation of the works of a seminal Scottish author and suggests new possibilities for the study of national literatures. Drawing on philosophy, sociology, politics, and religion as well as modern trends in literary theory, this book not only argues for Brown's continued importance, but also details a new model of the relationship between literature and community. Timothy C. Baker demonstrates that a community-based discussion of literature enriches any consideration of literary depictions of modern identity.
