Andrew Lang book

Professor Alex Warwick and Dr Leigh Wilson, from the Department of English, Linguistics and Cultural Studies, have edited, along with Dr Andrew Teverson (Kingston University), the two volume Edinburgh Critical Edition of the Selected Writings of Andrew Lang.

Edinburgh University Press will publish the book in May 2015.

This is the first critical edition of the works of Andrew Lang, the Scottish writer whose enormous output spanned the whole range of late 19th century intellectual culture, including history, literature, anthropology, scientific method and fairy stories. The two volumes for the first time provide a critical framework for the assessment of the work of this neglected writer.
