William Drummond and the British Problem
This chapter discusses a long poem by William Drummond called Forth Feasting. The poem displays a heightened value of the King by emphasizing Scotland's grief at his absence. This makes that absence seem more unfortunate, and for this it compensates by extrapolating James's success as a Scottish king into his achievements after 1603. Through his poem, Drummond is also able to emphasize the cost of union.
