Beschreibung

First published in 1979. This study explores the main critical issues that arise out of a modern reading of Scott's work, and treats the major novels in detail. It tackles the questions of Scott's place in literary history and his problems in pioneering the historical novel. As well as examining the greater novels of the Scottish series, the author also deals with the relation between historical fiction and reality, with reference to the Waverley Novels, and Scott's own attitude to history. Also discussed are some of the possible reasons for Scott's failure to depict conflicts in his contemporary society. This book would be of interest to students of literature.
