Men Should Weep in Context
In the 1930s, life for Glaswegians living in tenements was characterised by unemployment, poverty, disease and deprivation. Discussing Scotland’s economic decline and depression, life in Glasgow tenements and changing gender roles and opportunities for women, this video explains the historical context behind Ena Lamont Stewart’s ‘Men Should Weep’. It provides a valuable accompaniment to Higher English students studying this play.
