George Mackay Brown’S “Celia”: The Creative Conversion Of A Catholic Heroine, Linden Bicket

Studies in Scottish Literature

Compares the early manuscript and published text of a short story "Celia," by the Scottish Orcadian writer, poet, and Catholic convert George Mackay Brown (1921-1996), to examine the depiction of alcoholism in the story, the influence of Graham Greene, and Brown's softening or repression of his original explicit Catholic themes and imagery when revising the story for publication.
