The Lowlands of Scotland, Glasgow and the North
London: Robert Hale, 1953 First edition. Green cloth, gilt titling to spine, foldout map, 49 bw ills, index Pagination: xviii, 267. This book, the first of two devoted to the Scottish Lowlands, is more than a topographical dissertation on the countryside. It is a stimulating account of a personal re-discovery and reassessment of Lowland values by a young writer who suddenly found himself unable to go on accepting the stock answers about his country.<P>The author, well-known in Scotland and elsewhere as a poet - he is one of that group known as the Lallans Makars, whose work and aims for the preservation and restoration of the ‘guide Scots tongue’ has aroused so much interest and discussion - broadcaster and music-critic of a famous Scottish daily, begins and ends his ‘Progress through many spheres of Scottish activity and thought’ in Glasgow, because it was his birthplace. History, religion, politics, literature, art and architecture, lore and legend - these are but some aspects of the Scottish Lowlands surveyed and commented upon by Mr Lindsay in his first volume, which takes in Glasgow, the Firth of Clyde, Dunbartonshire, Stirlingshire, Clackmanna and Kinross, Fife and the counties ‘Ayont the Tay’.<P>This book will delight readers because of the poetic vividness which keeps on surging through Mr Lindsay’s prose. Some readers may find themselves stimulated to agreement with many of Mr Lindsay’s verdicts on controversial issues, both past and present; others may find themselves enthusiastically disagreeing with him. No on will be able to deny that this book, together with its forthcoming companion volume, forms the fullest and liveliest interpretation of the Lowland scene yet written. Contents: Glasgow; The Firth of Clyde; Dunbartonshire; Stirlingshire; Clackmannan and Kinross; The Kingdom of Fife; Ayont the Tay.
