Literature and Poetry

When people study books, the first thing that comes to mind is the study of literature. And this is completely natural – the great national works of prose and poetry have earned their rightful place at the center of the nation’s cultural life. In Scotland this is no different, with figures like Burns towering over the rest for the power of his verse and the way he’s impacted our daily language for centuries.

 

But woe to the person who limits the study (or the enjoyment!) of Scottish poetry and literature to the great Robbie Burns! Our history is littered with great figures, from the adventures of Robert Louis Stevenson to the mysteries of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Scottish novels and stories have captured imaginations the world over and provided the basis for some of the most adaptations a single character has ever had. But not only will you find some of the greatest pieces of world literature on our shelves, you’ll be introduced to some of the finest minds to ask questions of our literary traditions. If you’re looking for an entry point into literary studies, no matter if you’re a beginner or a longtime student, you won’t be disappointed!

 

Here at East Neuk Books, we have a special place in our hearts for our national tradition, and keeping a fully-stocked collection of Scottish literature and poetry is as much a duty as it is a pleasure. We have everything you’ll be looking for, all in a convenient place. You won’t even have to leave the comfort of your own home to find some of the greatest books Scotland has ever produced!
