This essay maps out relations between Irish and Scottish modernism as part of a new area of comparative criticism, Irish-Scottish studies, which has implications not only for English literature, but for postcolonial theory, which has tended to be anglocentric in terms of its analyses of British and Irish paradigms. This intervention takes five major Irish and Scottish writers - Muir, Yeats, MacDiarmid, Joyce and Grassic Gibbon - and looks at how language and identity are figured, forged and fused between two countries that are at once foreign and familiar.
