SCOTNOTES
study guides

Scotnotes are a series of study guides to major Scottish writers and literary texts that are likely to be elements within literature courses. They are aimed at senior pupils in secondary schools and students in further education colleges and colleges of education. Each title in the series is written by a person who is not only an authority on the particular writer or text but also experienced in teaching at the relevant levels in schools or colleges.

For many years there has been a shortage of readily accessible critical notes for the general student of Scottish literature. Scotnotes has grown as a series to meet this need, and provides students with valuable aids to the understanding and appreciation of the key writers and major texts within the Scottish literary tradition.

Scotnotes are priced £5.50 each and are available from all good bookshops.
