This article focuses on Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s staging of multiple personae both in his life and in his oeuvre. It deals with what is termed is here as an ‘heterodixical stance’ – a shifting perspective and fragmentary method that chimes with modernist techniques.

Abstract

This article focuses on Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s staging of multiple personae both in his life and in his oeuvre. It deals with what is termed is here as an ‘heterodixical stance’ – a shifting perspective and fragmentary method that chimes with modernist techniques. It discusses a wide range of works, both fictional and non-fictional, canonical and less explored. Through such a radical re-reading the article also attempts to reframe Gibbon’s nationalism as ‘cosmopolitan’ and fluid.
