Title: Exposing marginalisation and resisting hierarchy in How Late It Was, How Late
Authors: Chan, Grace Fiona Rui Ying
Keywords: DRNTU::Humanities::Literature
Issue Date: 2017
Abstract: This essay explores how Glaswegian author, James Kelman exposes and resists the class and language hierarchy in society in his Booker-Prize-winning-novel, How Late It Was, How Late. Accused of being more of a reporter who jots down facts than an artist who crafts his work, Kelman proves that staying true to his background by writing in the language he speaks in instead of using 'proper' language can be a creative tool in exposing and resisting marginalisation in society.
