    Abstract:
    Argues that to pass silently over the connections between English and Scottish literature is to reduce the multiple trajectories of British literary history, to silence the tensions regarding imperialism and sovereignty motivating literary production, and to miss out on the fruitful circulation of non- Chaucerian literary techniques such as the alliterative thirteen-line stanza, discussed here, for which the Scots should be widely known.
