Scots and their English studies

I just wanted to point out that its really pretty messed up that english speakers think that their own works aren’t worthy of study. Did other countries do the same thing with their native literature? I also think it’s cool that the study of English lit was a way for scots to improve themselves, and that they then brought it to colonized nations to teach them British values and customs. I’m left wondering what works they chose to represent themselves. Any ideas?
