This work provides a critical analysis of a neglected yet vital element of Scottish literature in the 18th century, covering the crucial period from the Union of 1707 to the revolutionary turmoil of the 1790s. It examines the literary output of several important clubs in eighteenth-century Scotland in an innovative fashion, offering the first book-length study of the club poetry of Scotland's most significant eighteenth-century poets, Allan Ramsay, Robert Fergusson and Robert Burns.
Corey E. Andrews received his doctorate in English from Ohio University. He has published and presented papers on eighteenth-century Scottish poetry, particularly the work of Robert Burns. He is currently an assistant professor of eighteenth-century British literature at Northwest Missouri State University.
