The twentieth century was one of the richest periods in history for literary translations into Scots. Not since the sixteenth century has the Scots tongue been the vehicle for such a volume and range of translations and adaptations. This anthology celebrates the crucial contribution by translators for the stage to the practice of both Scots playwriting and Scots literary translation. It further demonstrates how the demands of translation for the stage help re-invent and extend literary Scots. The collection comprises translations of classic plays from a variety of eras and languages, produced over half a century by writers of different generations. Each employs an individually-fashioned stage-Scots. It makes available texts that have hitherto been difficult to find, with three of the translations published here for the first time. In addition to full play-texts, the volume supplies an informative introduction, notes, appendices, bibliography and a full glossary.
