Scottish Polysyzygiacal Identity and Brian McCabe’s Short Fiction
Resumen: Contemporary Scottish literature has increasingly involved complex negotiations between the different Scottish identities that have proliferated since the nineteen seventies and nineteen eighties. At the present time, the concept of identity postulated is no longer essentialist and monologic, like the one associated to the two halves of the traditional 'Caledonian antisyzygy', but positional and relational, 'polysyzygiacal', to use Stuart Kelly's term. As this article shows, Brian McCabe's short fiction explores Scottish identitarian issues from a renewed multifaceted and dialogic perspective, fostering an ongoing debate about what it means to be Scottish nowadays, and contributing to the diversification and pluralisation of literary representations of identity.
