The eighteenth century forms a really unique duration of Scottish literary history,for of its Guys of Observe not a person had begun to put in writing once the century started, andall of these, apart from Dugald Stewart, experienced ceased to put in writing when it finished.

The majority of the Scots writers had allthe qualities of their region inside their speech, their manners, and means ofliving, they usually preserved their individualities and peculiarities unsuppressedby those social conventions and restraints of fashion which in the later agemoulded their countrymen to extra standard types.
