Stroh’s methodology is to examine Scottish Gaelic poetry from its beginnings to the present day through detailed analysis of individual poems (with English translations of all quotations) in light of postcolonial theory and practice. Employing this strategy with confidence and skill, Stroh demonstrates at numerous points the usefulness of postcolonial theory and criticism in understanding Scottish Gaelic poetry.

Silke Stroh, Uneasy Subjects: Postcolonialism and Scottish Gaelic Poetry (Rodopi, 2011). As her opening sentence acknowledges, there is some contentiousness about such a project. Neither Scotland in general nor the Highlands in particular has ever been a colony in the same way as the overseas colonies of the British empire (or other European empires). For the last 300 years Scotland has been part of Great Britain and for hundreds of years the Gaelic-speaking Highlands have been, politically speaking, partly of Scotland.

In early Middle Ages what is now Scotland was culturally and politically divided.

Scottish literature is literature written in Scotland or by Scottish writers. The earliest extant literature written in what is now Scotland, was composed in Brythonic speech in the sixth century and has survived as part of Welsh literature

Australia, the United States, and Canada (particularly Nova Scotia) are also home to Scots Gaelic communities.

Scottish and "Celtic fringe" postcolonialism has caused much controversy and unease in literary studies. Can the non-English territories and peoples of the British Isles, faced with centuries of English hegemony, be meaningfully compared to former overseas colonies? This book is the first comprehensive study of this topic which offers an in-depth study of Gaelic literature. It investigates the complex interplay between Celticity, Gaeldom, Scottish and British national identity, and international colonial and postcolonial discourse. It situates post/colonial elements in Gaelic poetry within a wider context, showing how they intersect with socio-historical and political issues, anglophone literature and the media. Highlighting the centrality of Celticity as an archetypal construct in colonial discourses ancient and modern, this volume traces post/colonial themes and strategies in Gaelic poetry from the Middle Ages to the present. Central themes include the uneasy position of Gaels as subjects of the Scottish or British state, and as both intra-British colonised and overseas colonisers. Aiming to promote interdisciplinary dialogue, it is of interest for scholars and students of Scottish Studies, Gaelic and English literature, and international Postcolonial Studies.
