Beschreibung

Sunset Song is the first and most celebrated of Grassic Gibbon's great trilogy, A Scot's Quair. It provides a powerful description of the first two decades of the century through the evocation of change and the lyrical intensity of its prose. It is hard to find any other Scottish novel of the last century which has received wider acclaim and better epitomises the feelings of a nation.

Portrait

James Leslie Mitchell, 'Lewis Grassic Gibbon' (1901-35), was born and brought up in the rich farming land of Scotland's North East coast. After a brief and unsuccessful journalistic career, he joined the Royal Army Service Corps in 1919 serving in Persia, India and Egypt. Thereafter he spent a further six years as a clerk in the RAF. He married Rebecca Middleton in 1925, and became a full-time writer in 1929. The young couple settled in Welwyn Garden City where they lived until the writer's death in 1935. Mitchell published a number of short stories and articles and his first book, Hanno, or the Future of Exploration appeared in 1928. Seven novels followed under his own name, Stained Radiance (1930); The Thirteenth Disciple (1931); Three Go Back (1932); Image and Superscription (1933); The Lost Trumpet (1932); Spartacus (1933) and Gay Hunter (1934). In the same year Mitchell collaborated with Hugh MacDiarmid to make Scottish Scene, which contained three of Mitchell's best short stories, later collected in A Scots Hairst (1969). He adopted his mother's name for his finest work, the trilogy A Scots Quair, which comprised Sunset Song, Cloud Howe and Grey Granite written between 1932 and 1934. Dogged by ill health at the end, Mitchell died of a perforated ulcer at the age of only thirty-four.
